On the edge: an exploration of the visual arts in remote rural contexts of Northern Scotland.
This case study is a programme of five visual art projects in Northern Scotland with five regional partners that have come about through a research framework. It demonstrates aspects of the dynamic of intervention largely focused by conversation between the participants in the process. Intervention, as an artistic tactic (De Certeau, 1998), raises a number of significant questions that challenge a conventional understanding of how art is made and experienced, in particular the status of the artist as sole author, the artwork as the sole vehicle for exploring creativity, and the audience as passive witnesses of the creative act.
