Tides and Tributaries – Sunday 30th July

Join us for a walk and talk on Sunday 30th July as part of Scottish Sculpture Workshop Frontiers In Retreat programme at the CCA Glasgow.

Bringing together different strands from recent projects and collaborations Alex and Hannah from Open Jar Collective will be joined by artist Fernando Garcia-Dory for a walk and talk shaped by the flowing of water through the city. Along the walk we will share our methods and approaches to facilitating exchange in the projects INLAND and Soil City. Conversation will be stimulated and diverted by reflections on places and people visited along the route. The walk will take in a number of sites that provoke thinking about borders, edges, commons and knowledge exchange.

Meeting at the CCA at 11am we will begin with a short introduction to Soil City and INLAND before we get the subway under the Clyde to visit sites in Govan including the Galgael project.

Show Us Your Tools

At the beginning of May, Open Jar Collective were in residence at Scottish Sculpture Workshop, investigating the history and philosophy of land based tools.  Here are some of the questions we’ve been asking:

What brings a tool to life?

What is a dead (end) tool?

What are the tools of your trade?

What isn’t a tool?

Are tools inert and useless without human agency?

Do tools represent human ‘control’ over nature?

How do tools disrupt or enhance our ability to inhabit our environment?

We’ll be back at SSW in September to continue the research.
