In January 2017,  Volkskammer and Test Space International, Bristol presented ‘Operation Skye’, a series of works, performances and interractions which took place on and around 573904.1N 062400.6W at Kilmuir, North Skye, Scotland.

This exhibition re-places these works (and sometimes what remains of them) within the antiseptically neutral environment of the traditional white cube gallery. Stripped of their original context, where weather (particularly the wind), time of day and light (or more especially the quality and sometimes absence of it), dominated the works to the extent that some were virtually impossible to physically install and others suffered enormous damage and even destruction, the exhibition questions what we can ever really know about place or experience without being physically present ourselves…

With Julian Claxton, Tom Goddard, Helen Grant, Will Kendrick, Jo Lathwood, Milo Newman and Natasha Rosling, Mark Samsworth, Solveig Settemsdal
