EXTREME REMOTE RURAL artist travel agency
… a device to be used only in extreme cases where errors severe enough to cause misunderstanding are detected too late to correct in the normal way …
ERRATA is a new body of collective works by Shetland artist-led initiative Gaada, which critically explores the barriers and benefits of contemporary art practice in extreme, remote, rural contexts. Through a series of intimate provocations, Gaada offers corrections to romantic, often unrealistic notions of artists working in rural places and present some of the collaborative relationships which have been developed since establishing 14 months ago.
