New Weather Coming is a project by Glasgow-based artist Jacqueline Donachie. Responding to a tour of Scotland using public transport in the early months of 2014, and a lifetime of family holidays without a car. New Weather Coming refers poetically to the experiences and encounters that take place on such journeys, journeys so different in intent and expectation than those taken by commuters.
A specially created book is being given to passengers on certain journeys across Scotland between July and September 2014. The book also connects three touring sculptures, New Weather Coming I, New Weather Coming II and New Weather Coming III which you can encounter installed at locations where travellers change from one kind of transport to another.
You can find the sculptures at:
Ullapool Harbour (14 August - 30 August)
Mallaig Harbour (15 August - 7 September)
Previously the sculptures were at:
Dumfries Train Station (30 June - 12 July)
Oban Train Station (30 June - 12 July)
Hospitalfield House, Arbroath (4 July - 11 July)
Wemyss Bay Ferry Terminal (18 July - 24 July)
Gourock Ferry Terminal (18 July - 1 Aug)
Scrabster Harbour (21 July - 12 August)
Kyle of Lochalsh (26 July - 15 August)
The phrase ‘new weather coming’ is taken from Kathleen Jamie’s 2005 book Findings.
