Edge Effects
Green Tease - Frontiers in Retreat
Creative Carbon Scotland

Fri 28 July 2017

Join Creative Carbon Scotland (CCS), Scottish Sculpture Workshop (SSW) and partners of the Frontiers in Retreat programme for an afternoon of talks and discussion, facilitated by CCS Director, Ben Twist, as part of the Green Tease event series.

For this Green Tease, SSW brings together three important voices in the Frontiers In Retreat project to provide insights into, and reflections on, the five year project.

Curator Taru Elfving will discuss how planetary ecological transformations become apparent and negotiable on remote sites at the edges of Europe and what it might mean to retreat into the frontiers amidst the present global urgencies.

Artist Carl Giffney presents an introduction to his feature length documentary - I really don’t feel them - which was shot in at Scottish Sculpture Workshop on the night of the Independence Referendum and in Finland at Mustarinda (FI) and the Helsinki International Art Programme (HIAP).

And sonic artist and researcher Ximena Alarcon will guide a collective Deep Listening exercise that explores interstitial spaces, such as dreams and the in-between space in the context of migration.

This event is presented as part of Scottish Sculpture Workshop: Edge Effects; a programme of workshops, walks, sound work, film and performance that explore the complex co-dependencies between ecological, social, economic, and political phenomena.

Edge Effects runs from 27 - 30 July at CCA and sites across the city. For more details on the full programme visit: SSW Edge Effects.
