Public Talks series 2020: Borbála Soós


Public Talk #1: Borbála Soós | Wednesday 12 February 2020

Orchard visit, 11am – 12pm
Huntly Community Orchard
The Meadows,
Public talk, 7:30 – 9pm
Scottish Sculpture Workshop
1 Main Street,

Join curator Borbála Soós for a public talk in the form of a journey, exploring relationships between people, places and materials. Through stories, video, sound and artworks, she invites us to travel through a series of passageways; from a spiral staircase inside a shell, to an underwater forest resembling the rewilded hills in the Cairngorms National Park, and other parallel realities on the way.

There are two separate events, the first a group visit to the Huntly Community Orchard in the morning, the second a public talk at Scottish Sculpture Workshop in the evening. Feel free to join either or both events.

Borbála Soós is based in London. She has an independent curatorial, writing and teaching practice and is an active advocate, participant and organiser of artistic, curatorial and ecological research. She is currently a Research Associate at CCA Derry-Londonderry; and is leading a Peer Forum around ecologies of rewilding in collaboration with Artquest and the Horniman Museum and Gardens, London. Borbála’s recent research focuses on the development of structures found in nature and explores how these relate to social organisation. Her curatorial practice responds to, disrupts and enriches environmental thinking and related social and political urgencies.
