For our September ONE WORK screening we are presenting Louise Barrington’s work ‘Sylph’ (2021).
‘Sylph’ was one of the first films to be made responding to Louise’s on-going project Four Seasons: making the invisible visible, which focuses on the changing landscape experience on Orkney over the calendar year. The title Sylph comes from the 16th century writings of Paracelsus, who describes sylphs as invisible beings of air. The invisible markers we experience daily such as sound and scent connecting us to the everyday rhythm and patterns, we individually experience within the landscape knowing or unknowingly. These markers are the ephemeral moments that place us in the present moment. Sylph observes the everyday dance that we perform as we move through the seasons.
For our September ONE WORK event (7 – 8pm on 28 September) Louise Barrington will discuss her recent work‘Sylph’ (2021). You can book a place for this event here.

ONE WORK is a series of online events that focus closely on a single work. These generous discussions provide an opportunity for an artist to present a recent work and talk through how the work came into being. Each work is available as a month-long online screening, followed by a specially commissioned written response that serves as documentation of both the work and the discussion.
