Come to Sutton Hoo this Sunday 19 March for Woodland and Talk

Posted 17 February 2017 in Afterlife News Talks and Workshops

We’re delighted to be invited by Somewhere (Nina Pope and Karen Guthrie) to the National Trust’s Sutton Hoo, on Sunday 19 March, as part of their long-term engagement with the site. You can listen to our Woodland audio work, followed by a panel discussion with us, Somewhere, Dr. Carolyn Rando and Angus Wainwright.


Details from Somewhere’s website:

Experience the moving audio art work ‘Woodland’ by French & Mottershead whilst lying in ‘Top Hat Wood’ beside the Sutton Hoo burial mounds. Then join Somewhere for a hosted discussion with artists and archaeologists about this moving audio work and the ‘invisible’ bodies which lay in the Sutton Hoo burial ground.

‘Woodland’ is a poetic, visceral work that describes your body’s slow fade into the leaf litter of the forest floor. This work connects you deeply to your body, and considers the biological and chemical processes that continue long after you are conscious, as you are gently subsumed by the earth over thousands of years.

For the Afterlife discussion, we will be joined by French & Mottershead (Artists), Dr Carolyn Rando (Bioarchaeologist and Forensic Anthropologist) and Angus Wainwright (Archaeologist for Sutton Hoo).
