LEARNING A STONE

LECTURE // PERFORMANCE by Beatrice Searle

Beatrice Searle in an artist and stonemason, living and working in Scotland. This lecture/performance centres around her attempts to 'know' a piece of Scottish granite; its history, its structure, its character and its interior. Join us at Dornoch Street for an evening of geology, literature and performance. The stone will be present.

About Beatrice:

Beatrice's practice explores how human beings connect to their landscape and natural environment, the internal landscapes we construct for ourselves and the power of landscape to affirm and strengthen. She has recently undertaken two North Sea crossings and a five hundred mile walk through Norway: from Oslo, over the Dovrefjell mountains and into Trondheim, harnessed to a forty kilo, beloved Orcadian rock. Throughout history a contradictory double impulse has been part of the human condition; the desire for stability, to be anchored, secure and rooted, and the inescapable evolutionary impulse to be in motion. The innate urge to move conflicts with our desire to find permanent home and place. She is interested in how we might balance these tensions and the way they inform our sense of self, since questions of motion versus anchorage have become even more relevant in today’s era of mass migration and globalisation. Ecological and geological research are the main informants of her practice. The work manifests through sculpture, performance, writing and drawing.
