Project LP.C5 (2014 - 2015)
Nevis Landscape Partnership and London Fieldworks are delivering LP.C5 Outlandia, a venture supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and one of Nevis Landscape Partnership's nineteen projects. Outlandia is currently recognised as a unique and nationally significant element of the Nevis landscape alongside Ben Nevis and its rich history of inspiring both scientific and artistic exploration; provoking new ways of thinking. The intellectual and artistic heritage of the area is tangible and accessible by this project and its outputs which, to date, include; forty artist residencies, a week-long series of radio broadcasts, academic publication entitled Remote Performances in Nature and Architecture and REMOTE CENTRES; Performances from Outlandia exhibition at Edinburgh Arts Festival.
The space, imagined by London Fieldworks, is a field-station for use by by artists; local, national, international; a meeting place, a hideout, a shelter, a studio, a cabin in the forest, a platform for artists to be in residence and for others to stumble across and wonder about its contents. Outlandia encourages creative interaction between artists and the land, its history and its people. It is an off-grid space to disconnect, a sustainable sculpture and a major contribution to contemporary arts development in Lochaber.
Since its completion almost a decade ago Outlandia has hosted local, national and international artists of all backgrounds, ages and disciplines and maintains a presence via this project, online media, social networks, word of mouth and chance encounters via its various intersections. Plans are in place for a collaborative Outlandia exhibition in the summer of next year celebrating the project and all who have enjoyed Outlandia.
Nevis Landscape Partnership are the key holders for Outlandia and facilitate the sharing of resources with anyone who wants to know more about the space and artists in residence regarding the local area, our environmental projects and our partner organisations. If you are an artist and wish to use Outlandia contact London Fieldworks with a proposal.
