6 JULY - 26 AUGUST 2019

KYST is a solo exhibition by SWLA member, Ben Woodhams, a British artist living in Denmark, on the island of Bornholm. The exhibition is the result of an ambitious project undertaken by the artist over the course of last year.

Every Friday in 2018, Ben walked a section of the coastline of Bornholm, making a record of the journey through sketching and painting. Walking from dawn to dusk, Ben was presented with constant change: the changing weather, the passing seasons, the arrival of migratory birds and tourists. As a slow and quiet observer, Ben recorded the passage of time and its effect on nature and people. The exhibition reflects the meditative nature of the project and is accompanied by a book.

The exhibition runs from Saturday 6 July until Monday 26 August 2019. Open daily, 10am to 4pm. All welcome, free entry.


SOC brings together like-minded individuals with a passion for birds, nature and conservation through a programme of talks, outings, conferences and via the Club’s quarterly journal, Scottish Birds.
