Those who possess dirt

Those Who Possess Dirt 1

Those who possess dirt is an ongoing research collaboration intent on untangling the material and ontological possibilities of more-than-human coexistence within Glasgow’s High Street.

After an extensive period of reduced social contact, the artists Shona Robin MacPherson, Clarinda Tse and India Boxall, alongside curator and researcher Ruby Eleftheriotis, will take up residence at New Glasgow Society.

Together they will consider new modes of knowledge production, collaboration, and healing by focusing on botanical matter through the lens of practice-led research. Over the course of the residency, the New Glasgow Society window spaces will mediate between research and activities developed in the space and the built environment of High Street.

We invite you to explore, learn and talk with us during the pit stops which will take place every Tuesday 2-3pm, Thursday 2-3pm, Saturday 2-3pm from the 10th June – 30th June.

A guided walk with the artists will take place on the 15th June (booking required).

Research, findings and new work will also be shared on an ever-evolving Growth Log over the course of the residency followed by a publication produced later in the year.

This project is funded by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland, Hope Scott Trust and supported by New Glasgow Society.
