An Lanntair is a hub for creativity and the Arts in the Outer Hebrides. We are a multi arts venue – at one and the same time a contemporary art gallery, a theatre, a cinema, a dance studio, a concert hall, a platform for poetry and literature, a studio – every space stretched to showcase the Arts in multiple forms. Our work stretches across a national and international platform, yet our distinctiveness lies in being ‘of the place’, rooted in who we are, and the creativity of Gaelic and the Outer Hebrides takes centre stage.
Our mission is “to connect and inspire people in producing extraordinary, creative programmes, uniquely rooted in the place and reflecting the Arts and ideas of our time”.
“The child who is not embraced by the village will burn it down to feel its warmth.” – Nigerian proverb
An exhibition on the theme of The Abandoned Child Archetype. Nineteen characters navigating their way over rocky ground. A story waiting to be told. All these children have something in common. They have been thrown or have fallen from the nest and are left to ﬁnd their own way without guidance.
Mhairi Corr has been creating and exhibiting throughout the UK since graduating from Glasgow School of Art in 1982. Her unique paper pulp figures arrive each with their own presence and individual back story.
