59.14 N 3.34 W presents the culmination of a curatorial residency undertaken by Laura Mansfield at the The Erlend Williamson Art Fellowship with support from The Orkney Cultural Fund. Laura has invited the artists Sovay Berriman, Franziska Lantz and Matt Rowe to join her on the residency to develop work in response to The Brough of Birsay, a small tidal island off the westcoast of mainland Orkney.
The invited artists are exploring the history and geography of The Brough of Birsay developing a selection of works that draw upon ideas of the island as a site of ritual, a sculptural form and a point of communication.The final event invites the public to partake in a journey across the Brough encountering and participating in each of the artist’s works.
