Archiving Oil


Archiving Oil – Earth Sciences Building Bristol University. May / June 2013

Neville Gabie was commissioned by the Cabot Institute at Bristol University to be artist in residence from summer 2012- summer 2013, funded by the Leverhulme Trust. The Cabot Institute brings together scientists and academics from all departments to work together collaboratively in response to climate change, risk and uncertainty.

Archiving Oil is the first opportunity to see what Neville has been up to. An installation for a limited number of days has been installed in the basement and rock store [archive] of the Earth Sciences Faculty in the Will Memorial Building, Bristol. Working with Social Geographer, Merle Patchett, the exhibition focuses on our relationship and dependence on an oil based economy. Neville will be showing four new video works.

Lily Rose skiff – under construction in Achiltibuie, Scotland

Neville Gabie embarked on a new project commissioned by IOTA [Inverness Old Town Arts] in September 2012 to make a film about the construction, launch and first season of the Skiff Lily Rose. Built by Coigach Rowing, the film will be as much about the remote highland community of Achiltibuie, the community and the spirit of rowing as about the boat itself.

Neville is working with assistant documentary film maker Emma Dove, Sound Recordist Becky Thompson and editor Stuart Ward.

The project is well under way now and the skiff almost complete – The Launch next
