Siân McIntyre's exhibition Circular Settlements is the result of three years of research undertaken in Australia and Scotland.
An installation incorporating sound, turf, video and print, Circular Settlements reflects on dislocation and loss. Each work echoes actions typically associated with the claiming of cultures or sites. These actions are attempts to access a connection to place by referencing colonial land clearing, cultural appropriation and performance.
The result is a collection of surreal and at times humorous attempts to claim place and culture, creating an awkward space of displacement and vulnerability.
The title Circular Settlements is borrowed from Isobel Parker Phillip’s review of Exile’s Lament for The Art Life.
