Back To Life: The SWH! Podcast Talks To Kirsty Law About Exposure...



For our first video podcast (or vodcast as no one is calling it) in some time, SWH! made a welcome trip Doon the Watter to Dunoon Burgh Hall to talk to previous podcast guest Kirsty Law about Exposure - an exhibition which is the result of a collaboration between Gilles Perring and Andy Metcalf.

Focusing on the two artists' relationship with the Isle of Jura, Exposure is a multi-media installation which features music, painting, poetry, photography, sound sculpture, and film.


Produced by Kirsty's multi-disciplinary production company and artist support service, Helm Arts, it's a thought-provoking and emotionally exciting exhibition which stimulates the senses as you lose yourself in Perring's and Metcalf's Jura.


Ali talks to Kirsty about how the project began, the differing, almost opposing, perspectives on the subject, each aspect of the final show, the plans for taking Exposure around the country, her own role in proceedings, and a whole lot more.

As the arts begin to open up again it's a fascinating insight into what goes on behind the scenes of such an exhibition, and is a reminder as to how much the arts need an audience, and how the two have missed each other.


Although there are the usual audio versions of the podcast we highly recommend you watch the video below (which features Giles' music and images from EXPOSURE) to get the best idea of what to expect from the exhibition, and to get visual evidence of a SWH! podcast where two people talk to each other in the same room once again.

And if you enjoyed that, all the video versions of the podcasts are available on our YouTube channel.
