Grounded (Freumhaichte/Wadlu-Gnana) is an exhibition of photographic prints, audiovisual, sound and prose by Judith Parrott. Parrott’s work examines the relationships between community and place, the importance of cultural identity, and the resulting personal and environmental wellbeing.
As a result from working alongside communities from around the globe, including residencies with Gaelic speaking communities of the Outer Hebrides in Scotland and with the Wangkangurru, Arrarnta and Arrernte people of the Central Australian Desert, she has developed her Place Matters series following her own migration from Scotland to Australia, and consequent exploration of issues around displacement.
The exhibition is part of Cape Farewell’s Sea Change, a four-year programme of research and making across Scotland’s western and northern isles.
