Ruairidh agus Ruairidh Eile (Derek/Rody and the other Derek/Rody)
This listing is from a previous year. Search for current listings.
This exhibition brings together works inspired by the artist Derek Robertson’s extended collaboration with the Gaelic poet Rody Gorman, who appears at StAnza 2012. Landscape and locality feature in the work of both, and as a Gaelic speaker himself, Robertson works with meanings and connotations in the original and English versions of the poems, often using visual metaphors that mirror or contrast aspects of both languages, and explores how ideas change and are adapted. The title of the exhibition also suggests the way that ideas are mirrored and changed. The names 'Derek' and 'Rody' are both forms of the Gaelic name 'Ruairidh'. Part of StAnza.
