Wilder Being brings together archaeologists, artists, environmental scientists and members of the community to explore an archaeological site (Pool, Sanday, Orkney) which is eroding into the sea with innovative and experimental field practice. Themes of coastal erosion, climate change, modern beach material and the environment merge within an assemblage of past and present.
The story of the Wilder Being, a creature inspired by Orcadian folklore and generated from the Sanday shore, culminates in an exhibition opening this Saturday 15th November at the Pier Arts Centre, Stromness, Orkney. The costume will be on display along with a screening of the project film.
This event is led by: University of the Highlands and Islands (Archaeology Institute and Art and Design)
In partnership with: International Centre for Island Technology, Heriot-Watt University Orkney Campus, SCAPE, Pier Arts Centre
