First There is a Mountain by Katie Paterson

Sunday 21 July 2019
3.00pm - 6.00pm
Glenbrittle Beach, Isle of Skye
Free, everyone welcome
Join us for a special event to transform Glenbrittle Beach into sand mountains as part of artist Katie Paterson's new participatory artwork First There is a Mountain.
First There is a Mountain invites the public to sculpt beaches into mountains of sand to form micro-geologies, using specially created 'bucket and spade' sets which are scale models of famous mountains: Mount Kilimanjaro (Africa), Mount Shasta (USA), Mount Fuji (Asia), Stromboli (Europe) and Uluru (Oceania). These sets will be available to use on the day.

The artwork is touring twenty-five high-profile venues and their local sandy beaches over British Summer Time 2019, for a series of one-off events, creating a time-based topographical map orchestrated against a backdrop of tidal times. Twenty-five new texts responding to each coastal location have been produced by celebrated writers, which will be read aloud at the start of each event.
