Bodies of Water is about an island and an extended family. The island is the Hebridean Isle of Mull, off the West coast of Scotland and the family are the Morisons, many generations of whom were born and lived on the island, many of whom now lie in the soil. The Morisons are my maternal ancestors.

Over the years I have been exploring Mull and developing projects on the island. I am, quite literally, following in the footsteps of my ancestors – walking over tracts of land they once farmed, roaming seashores and moorland they regularly trod.

Bodies of Water celebrates the place and the people, past and present. The constant presence of water on Mull (loch, burn, bog and sea) has penetrated the work and become a metaphor for the passing of time, the transience of the body.
