Grampian Hospitals Art Trust have commissioned FOUND Collective (Ziggy Campbell and Simon Kirby) to create new work for the exhibition Terra Nova, at The Suttie Arts Space, in response to photographs taken by Dr William Clark Souter of the 1903 Terra Nova Antarctic expedition.

About

The project has culminated in 10 new digital prints that will be presented for the Terra Nova exhibition, alongside a new film and soundtrack composed by FOUND, as well as the production of a 12” vinyl record and a printed publication, both of which will be released in early 2016.

Dr William Clark Souter travelled to Antarctica in 1903 on board the Terra Nova ship bound to rescue Captain Scott’s RRS Discovery from ice. He then continued his career at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary as an Ophthalmic Surgeon for over 40 years, and was one of few Britons to be awarded the Polar Medal for his services during the Terra Nova expedition. The photographs are housed within the University of Aberdeen Special Collections.

 

 

This exhibition has been supported by: Creative Scotland, NHS Grampian, Paul Hamlyn Foundation, University of Aberdeen Special Collections, Vibrant Aberdeen (Aberdeen City Council)
