October 2013

Only available in English for now

Alec Finlay’s còmhlan bheanntan /​a company of mountains was an ATLAS Arts commission that saw the artist produce a variety of poems, photos, essays and​‘word-mntn’ drawings which took inspiration from Sorley Maclean’s poem Ceann Loch Aeoineart. This collaborative project saw Alec work with a number of other artists to select fourteen sites, or conspectuses, in the Isle of Skye from which to explore the mountains, history, culture and mythology of the island.
