Opening Hours: Mon to Sat 10 - 4pm
Kim Walker exhibits Gentler Passion, presenting a sound installation exploring the architectural forms surrounding hand-made sheds that pigeon fanciers build for their birds. Dookits or Doocots are hand-built structures constructed of wood or scrap metal and are used to house pigeons. Within Scotland there are structural remnants reflecting the traditions of rearing and keeping pigeons for racing and leisure. This tradition was prevalent in Europe and notably, within urban environments of Scotland.
Gentler Passion was generously supported by the Scottish Sculpture Workshop's (SSW) Winter Residency program 2013.
