Adderstanes is an exhibition of new work by Benjie Cluness from Glasgow, recipient of The Cromarty Arts Trust Student Prize 2016, and is the culmination of a month long research project into the myths, legends, and folklore of the Black Isle and the rest of Britain.
The work draws connections from tales of giants who once ruled the British Isles to the giants of industry that grew out of the Industrial Revolution, eventually usurped by the giants of capital.
Adderstanes questions the human desire to understand the world around us, and the continued need for folk - and fairy - tales in our culture. The work featured continues Cluness’ technique of appropriating high and low culture, utilising it to fit a narrative of his own creation.
Come and join us at the Stables for a glass of wine any time between 7.30pm - 9.30pm and take in Benjie's short film and hangings.
