TateShots Edinburgh: Boyle Family
TateShots met up with the Boyle Family as they installed a new work at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. The 'World Series' began life at a party hosted by Mark Boyle and Joan Hills in 1968, where the guests were invited to throw darts at a large map of the world. Since then, the artists have studied the exact parts of the world where the darts landed, resulting in a range of output including sculptures, films and photographs. This exhibition, presenting their observations of a spot of coast in the Outer Hebridean island of Barra, is the result of eighteen years' work and the first of the series to be made in Britain.World Series, Barra is on display at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh.
