The Ghost Village Project is Agents of Change most large-scale undertaking to date. Working on the remote Cowal Peninsula on the west coast of Scotland the artists transformed the abandoned village of Pollphail into an open air art gallery.
The brutalist 1970’s concrete structures had never seen human inhabitants – the site was constructed ostensibly as a base to house workers needed to construct concrete oil rigs, but the plan was subsequently abandoned and left to the elements of time and decay.
The village offered an ideal opportunity to the separate styles and methods employed by the collective.
Drawing inspiration from the marked contrast between the architecture and the surrounding landscape of rolling hills, forests and lochs the artists worked for three days through challenging physical conditions to produce foreboding yet hauntingly beautiful artwork.
