A biographical film documentary about the working practice of two artists, Tim Stampton and Ros Harvey, who have from their studios and home in Malin Head, for more than twenty years continued and developed their practice in this, the most remote of locations. Their multi-disciplinary work draws inspiration from their environment, its history, heritage and wider culture. Choosing to forego the ‘benefit’ of working in a more convenient location, being cut off in some respects from the amenities that life in a larger community might offer, these artist have chosen to relocate to this, perhaps unlikely locale.
This project represents an opportuity to showcase work of international standing being made in the area. Equally, it is to be made by other creative artists from the area with a shared understanding of their practice. By building a picture which draws together issues of geography/location, of long-term commitment to a type of practice, of dealing with sustaining ones practice in a rural area, the project aims to counter the presumption that graduates who want to develop their creative career must, of necessity move out of the area.
The project aims to Increase engagement with, and access to, the culture & creative sector by showcasing an example of best practice in the County.
