Performance artist Catherine Weir began her digital residency with Tobar an Dualchais and ATLAS in July 2020, joining ATLAS Director Ainslie on a 3‑day course hosted by Sabhal Mòr Ostaig to get an in-depth introduction to the Tobar an Dualchais collection. The course included lectures and workshops with folklorist and anthropologist Mairi McFadyen, Gaelic translator and cartographer Raghnaid Sandilands and Sabhal Mòr Ostaig Senior lecturer Dòmhnall Uilleam Stiùbhart.
Catherine is a performance artist and musician in a feminist punk collective called Fallope & The Tubes. Fallope & The Tubes is an exercise in mutual support and uninhibited self-expression and the energy it fills Catherine with drives her other more introverted practises of drawing, writing and, of late, animating. Her drawings and animations are observational and darkly comical and almost everything is driven by strong eco feminist leanings and an obsession with personal individual narrative.
