Mapping the Borders, Jedburgh
19 November, 2017
As part of Mapping the Borders, a full day of activities will take place in the border town of Jedburgh, with activities centred around The Bakery Studio, at the rear of 11A Exchange Street in Jedburgh (TD8 6BH). See below for the full day’s programme. Please note that some activities need to be booked separately.
7am till 5pm | Entr’actes: Alternative Arrangements (performance)
A drop-in durational collaborative exploration by the artists Felicity Bristow and Claire Pençak that unfolds over ten hours from the dark before dawn to the dark after dusk, exploring geological processes and the concept of deep time through the exploration of movement and materials. You can drop in on the performance at The Bakery any time from 7am till 5pm.
Gather at the Bakery for a guided walk to the Hutton Unconformity, led by Prof Mike Collier and naturalist Keith Bowey, who will play with the notion of borders from the non-human (and environmentally controversial) perspective of ‘alien’ (plant) species, linking this approach to recent social and political events.
At 12 o’clock we will convene back at the Bakery and gather for a pre-arranged lunch (please book) and discussion with the walk leaders, Keith and Mike.
Artist Zoe Childerley’s work will be holding a workshop and discussion on her work the Debatable Lands (2016).
At 2pm we will gather at the Bakery for a second guided walk to the Hutton Unconformity, led by Prof Mike Collier and naturalist Keith Bowey, who will explore the ‘edgelands’ which are typically the most bio diverse and this walk will explore the ‘more than human’ perspective of borderlands. This walk will include the Hutton Unconformity at Inchbonny and loop south from Jedburgh.
The walk will be finished by dusk, which will give you the chance to drop in on the final stages of the performance at the Bakery.
This event is part of the series Mapping the Borders
