LOCUS is a future public art trail, commissioned by Shetland Arts on behalf of Living Lerwick. As one of four selected artists, Civic Soup has been tasked with delivering a work in response to contemporary life on Shetland with regard to Where we are / Where we’re going / Where we’ve come from.


Our fascination around the culture and social history of textile production on Shetland has so far led us to develop and deliver creative workshops that borrowed from processes of ‘makkin’, and continues to inform the development of the artwork.
