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.
