Venue The Bakery Studio, Rear of 11A Exchange Street, Jedburgh
Date Sunday November 19th
Time Sunrise (7.53am) – Sunset (15.57pm)
The artists will work from 7.00am – 17.00pm to complete a ten hour performance duration.
Hutton’s Unconformity, a site of international geological interest located just outside of Jedburgh is a location where rock formations make different timescales visible.
‘We are not to look for nature in a quiescent state; matter itself must be in motion, and the scenes of life a continued or repeated series of agitations and events’
James Hutton, Theory of the Earth 1788
Entr’actes: Alternative Arrangements is the first in a series of collaborative explorations by the artists Felicity Bristow and Claire Pençak working with the vast scale and processes of geological or ‘deep’ time.
The durational studio performance is a response through movement, architecture and materials to Hutton’s Unconformity at Inchbonny, Jedburgh. The artists will be working between dawn to dusk through a series of action scores and material interventions exploring accumulation and dis-accumulation, erosion and deposition, change of state, reset and rearrangement and the near, far and infinite.
Audiences are invited to enter the performance at any time and stay for as long as they wish as it evolves.
Please come warmly dressed, as the Bakery Studio is not centrally heated.
Hot drinks will be available all day.
‘The result, therefore of our present enquiry is, that we find no vestige of a beginning – no prospect of an end’
James Hutton, Theory of the Earth, 1788
