Remote Centres: Performances from Outlandia
Exhibition: 30 July - 30 August
Launch Event: Wednesday 12 August, 5-7pm
REMOTE CENTRES: Performances from Outlandia is a spatial representation of the Outlandia field-station and plays host to performance and sound works originally created at Outlandia by 20 artists, poets, writers, musicians and members of the Nevis community in August 2014. The commissioned artists from Scotland, England, Wales and the Faroe Islands responded to Outlandia’s distinctive geographical forest location in the Scottish Highlands, overlooked by the UK’s highest mountain, using it as a testing ground for ideas concerned with ecology of place while exploring the possibility of new environmental aesthetics.
A collection of foraged natural materials have been transported to Tent Gallery where they will be transformed into a human-scale cuckoo's nest by artist Clair Chinnery from August 10th and completed for the exhibition Launch Event on August 12th.
The exhibition is curated by Bruce Gilchrist and Jo Joelson (Outlandia / London Fieldworks) in association with Art Space & Nature (ECA), and has been supported by the Nevis Landscape Partnership and Edinburgh College of Art.
The performances and sound works were originally commissioned for Remote Performances, a series of radio broadcasts from Outlandia, co-produced by London Fieldworks and Resonance 104.4fm, with support from Arts Council England, Live Art Development Agency, the Nevis Landscape Partnership, Oxford Brookes University and Forestry Commission Scotland.
