(w)ORD EBBE+FLOW Travelling Exhibition

USF (United Sardine Factory) Visningsrommet Gallery in Bergen 20.8-29.8.21

EBBE+FLOW is a touring exhibition, stemming from (w)ORD, a four years collaborative communication and artistic research project between nine artists based in Norway and Scotland: 

Sarah Jost

Marit Tunestveit Dyre

David Faithfull,

Rhona Fleming

David Lemm

Jon Macleod

Imi Maufe


Annie Strand

Calum Wallis.

(w)ORD started with two BAG Art Camp/Society of Scottish Artists residencies, first at Tormore on the Isle of Mull, Scotland, (2018) and then in Bergen and Tjuvika in Gulen, Norway (2019). Each residency investigated language, landscape and history with invited geologists, scientists, linguists and local inhabitants taking part in seminars and field trips alongside the artists.

EBBE+FLOW is presented in a specially designed chest (kist) containing individual drawers for each artist, and a display space for flat work, unfolding to reveal sculptures, drawings, prints, video and artefacts to fill the space in any sized gallery, ferry, barn or other unusual exhibition space.

An artist book publication accompanies the project and will be launched at An Tobar in Scotland in 2022. (w)ORD is initiated and curated by David Faithfull and Imi Maufe.
