Sexy Peat/Tìr mo Rùin, celebrates the ecology and heritage of the Lewis blanket bog and highlights the significant role that peat plays in global climate regulation. The project also celebrates the Gaelic heritage relating to the bog and the significance of the bog to the people who have lived with it.
Cape Farewell’s Sea Change is an exhibition featuring work from a four year programme of research and making across Scotland’s Western and Northern Isles including the print works of the Sexy Peat/Tìr mo Rùin project in partnership with Highland Print Studio.
The aim of the project is to highlight the impact climate change has, to encourage a greater understanding of the environment in the Western and Northern Isles, and to further enhance research in this area.
Sexy Peat/Tìr mo Rùin is part of the Year of Natural Scotland, a partnership between EventScotland, Scottish Natural Heritage and Creative Scotland.
