Unearthing social and historical gems from six local museum collections and archives across Scotland, Sydney based artist Kate Scardifield explores and reframes Scottish and Australian connections.

Presenting and creating art in a new context, her upcoming exhibition Ley Lines takes the work of Scottish Astronomer and Governor of New South Wales Thomas Brisbane as her starting point. Brisbane was one of the first to map the constellations of the southern hemisphere and in Ley Lines Kate Scardifield creates and connects new constellations.

These new works include textiles, sculpture and video, made in response to Brisbane’s collected astronomical equipment and selected objects and fragments held within six of Scotland’s local collections. Ley Lines opens courtesy of Fife Contemporary at St Andrews Museum in St Andrews on 2 December 2017 before touring to venues in Hawick and Falkirk throughout 2018 and 2019.
