Mount Stuart Trust has announced a solo exhibition by Christine Borland, as part of its ongoing Contemporary Visual Arts Programme.

Borland returns to Mount Stuart from June 23 to November 18 with ‘to The Power of 12’, having been there in 2013. This year, with the centenary of the WWI armistice, it is timely that she returns to Mount Stuart, inspired by its history as a WWI naval hospital. A unifying factor through the exhibition will be the number 12, which recurs symbolically in major world religions and across traditions, mythology and superstition. She said: “I have been interested in a resurgence of superstition and personalised belief systems during periods of extreme powerlessness associated with war.”
