SPOIL HEAP: Exhibition Launch Event

SPOIL HEAP is an exhibition that re-imagines, re-appropriates and re-positions archaeology and art. Experience a diverse collection of art pieces which range from installations that embody the henge to scanning technologies that investigate textural qualities of excavated matter. Immerse yourself in revived pagan rituals, reworked manual tools and contemporary artifacts that infiltrate and challenge historical conventions.

SPOIL HEAP follows these experiences and connections, bringing artists and archaeologists together to exhibit and exchange interdisciplinary processes such as flint knapping, meditation workshops, experimental film screenings and schools workshops.

SPOIL HEAP Launch day!

2.30pm & 6pm - talks & tours (ends 8pm)
Saturday 8th July

In responding to Neolithic excavation experiences from Marden Henge, artists and archaeologists are brought together to exhibit and exchange interdisciplinary processes such as flint knapping, meditation workshops, experimental film screenings and schools workshops. This unique opportunity opens up lines of communication to explore new horizons within these collaborative methods. The exhibition will propose a series of fragmented narratives structured around a section of a trench–like form are a series of propositions: slow tv of a mindfulness walk, a fabricated burial, embellished objects and ephemeral site specific works. A present space which questions how site and experience are revisited and reimagined within the museum. Interactive 3d printed sculptures re-map a landscape: objects and boundaries labour and rest.
