Let EDGE whisper to you of parted lovers, lost sailors and forgotten journeys.
EDGE is a ghost tideline that follows and entwines with the existing one at Carrick Foreshore, formed using detritus collected along the coast together with curious objects and artifacts large and small, given to, created or found by the artists. These clusters of objects form fragments of mysterious narratives and forgotten stories, some real, some imagined, some playful, others full of sadness and loss. The stories explore the nature of the link between this land and distant places and become part of the ancient tidal conversion between the sea and the shore.
The new tideline will be full of surprises, mysteries and revelations and visitors will be able to explore details of the work using the age-old skills of beach combing.
Over the three days of Spring Fling, visitors will find an EDGE publication full of stories and information about the tideline, a seashore themed ‘lending library’ and live music from Scottish ‘country-punk’ band The Hoolits, who will perform a mix of their own sea-themed tunes and traditional sea-shanties at 3.30pm on Saturday the 27th of May.
