In the early 18th century a sailor from Fife left his ship and lived alone for four years on an uninhabited Pacific island. Alexander Selkirk’s subsequent account of his experiences provided Daniel Defoe with inspiration for his novel, Robinson Crusoe. 300 years after its publication, at a venue close to Selkirk’s birthplace, Lower Largo, REFUGIO explores the blurring of fact with fiction between Selkirk and Crusoe.

The exhibition combines different approaches to representation by photographer Roger Palmer: analogue and digital photographs made in Scotland and Chile; temporary works based on illustrations in an early 20th century book for children; and extracts from J M Coetzee’s 1986 novel, Foe.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for ‘REFUGIO’ - after Selkirk after Crusoe are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
