REMOTE CENTRES: Performances from Outlandia.
Edinburgh College of Art: Tent Gallery
30 July – 30 August 2015
Mon-Fri: 12-5pm (or by appointment)
Exhibition launch event: 12th August 5-7pm
Part of Edinburgh Art Festival 2015, REMOTE CENTRES: Performances from Outlandia includes 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.

Environmental Art Festival Scotland
29th & 30th August 2015
Morton Castle, Dumfries and Galloway
Alec Finlay will give a talk on Saturday 29th August, at 6pm
EAFS is a free festival which uses art installations to inspire discussion about our environment and our role in protecting it. This year’s chosen space – Morton Castle in Upper Nithsdale, Dumfries and Galloway – is a dramatic festival backdrop that will provoke thought and trigger sensory experiences.
Alec will share a fireside conversation with David Borthwick about place-aware walks, names and poetic mapping, and, the following day, will guide a collective ‘conspectus’, defining places by their name in a view from the festival site, as a way to understand better where we are.
