Scottish Sculpture Workshop: Edge Effects

Scottish Sculpture Workshop: Edge Effects 1

Thursday 27 – Sunday 30 July 2017
CCA Glasgow and venues across the city

Edge Effects is a programme of workshops, talks, film and performance that explores the complex co-dependencies between ecological, social, economic and political phenomena. For this programme SSW brings together the processes developed by artists through the Frontiers in Retreat project with a wider group of artist’s practice to ask:

What multiple forms of knowledge, discourse, and models of action would construct a viable future for humans and other forms of life? 

What kinds of boundaries should be dismantled, so that change in the direction of an ecologically sustainable future could be possible?

At the Arlington Baths Club artists Mari Keski-Korsu and Maaria Alén will offer one to one sauna whisking treatments in Beat To The Balance. From the Pearce Institute and following the flow of the Clyde, sonic artist Ximena Alarcon will guide a two-day intensive Deep Listening workshop that seeks out possibilities for a post fossil fuel Scotland.

Evening performances will include new work by Áine O’Dwyer, presented in collaboration with Counterflows, and Charismatic Megafauna will be appearing in Scotland for the first time. At CCA, there will be newly-commissioned film work by artists Carl Giffney, Nabb + Teeri and Mirko Nikolić, and the Edge Effects library will host talks and workshops around empathy and activism, movement and social colonial narratives, Deep Mapping and interspecies communication. Newly commissioned publications by Simon Yuill, Nuno Sacramento and The Centre for Alterity Studies will also be launched.

As part of the programme CCS will host a Glasgow Green Tease talk and discussion which invites three important voices in the Frontiers In Retreat project to provide reflections on the five year project.
