Bog Myrtle and Flamethrowers is a new exhibition by artist and filmmaker Karel Doing. Encompassing still images, film strips and triple-projection film loops, the exhibition is part of Forage/Image, an Alchemy Film & Arts project exploring the relationship between artists, landscapes and environment.
Karel created Bog Myrtle and Flamethrowers in Hawick during a recent artist residency with Alchemy Film & Arts. Using local plants and plant-based chemistry, Karel worked with staff and volunteers from Burnfoot Community Futures and members of the Borders-based Moving Image Makers Collective.
Karel will join us for a Q&A at the exhibition opening on 27 September and the exhibition will run until 11 October, opening Wednesday – Saturday, 11am – 4pm.
