If you have an interest in the uncanny, weird, and eerie, you might want to head to Taigh Chearsabhagh next month for the opening preview of a new exhibition by Fiona MacIsaac.

The exhibition is the product of her research for her MRes Creative Practice programme.

It is centred in Gaelic Scotland with a particular focus on folklore from North Uist, Benbecula and South Uist.

The work explored the idea of the “wilderness” or am fàsach being the domain of the Otherworld and eventually narrowed to a particular area of North Uist moorland where Fiona personally felt a sense of the Uncanny, Weird and Eerie.

The Samhlaidhean exhibition is free and opens at 6 pm on October 8, when Fiona will introduce her new body of work and give a talk on the research and her creative process.
