1 WE FORM GEOLOGYsmall.jpg24th August - 7th December 2012

Ilana Halperin transformed the Travelling Gallery into a miniature hall of gems and minerals, incorporating geological specimens from National Museums Scotland, many of which related to the geographical locations visited on the Travelling Gallery tour. Visitors to the installation were able to discover Cairngorm Quartz, Lewisian Gneiss, Haggis Rock, and Ballachulish Slate alongside geologically inspired films, prints, drawings and sculptures by the artist.

The installation also included a new publication commissioned by the Travelling Gallery and featuring a new story, The Hard Stuff, by Nicola White.
