The Replica Hearth














The Replica Hearth


The Replica Hearth is a collaborative work with Kate McMorrine. It tells the story of 'Eoghann the Yeti', a crofter who mysteriously vanished into woodland on the Isle of Skye in 1984.

The work centres around an accurate reconstruction of Eoghann's living room inside a shipping container, and a museum/gift shop housing an exhaustive collection of speculative academia. The exhibition was a journey through his personal life and the contemporary history of his community, but beneath it were clues to something more sublime and unharnessed.

This project was made possible by the Skye & Lochalsh Talent Development Initiative, with funding from Creative Scotland.
