This session was hosted by Verity Birt and mirrored the session she led at Newbridge Projects. She brought her research exploring 'anarcheology' as art practice and showed work in progress for the upcoming exhibition, Our House of Common Weeds.
Together we read and discussed a chapter of Riddley Walker (Russell Hoban 1980); Simon O'Sullivan's essay 'Myth-Science as Residual Culture and Magical Thinking'; looked at prehistoric rock art in Northumberland; and watched Birt's recordings of SHE choir improvising at Lordenshaw Channel in Northumberland.
