Cock and Bull (and other events for ArtCOP Scotland)

This post comes to you from EcoArtScotland

Cock and Bull is a performance piece by Nic Green with Laura Bradshaw & Rosana Cade taking place on Sunday 6 December @ 3:00 – 4:00 pm, at the CCA in Glasgow.  It’s part of the ArtCOP Scotland programme of performances, exhibitions, talks (including Beautiful Renewables with the Land Art Generator Initiative on 18 November).

Halfway through the UN COP21 climate change talks in Paris, three females convene to perform their own, alternative conference of parties. Exploring power, voice, agency and sustainability they use the most heard phrases from governmental rhetoric, to dismantle and redress dominant paradigms of power and politics.

The UN Climate Change COP meetings are arguably the most important international events since those equivalent meetings about nuclear weapons that occurred in the 80s, but this time instead of just a few ‘major powers’, everyone is there, and the small countries and fringe programmes are significant too.

The French environment and arts organisation COAL have co-ordinated events in Paris, and Creative Carbon Scotland working with a consortium of other arts organisations in Scotland (including from the North East Deveron Arts and South West The Stove Network, as well as Gayfield, Firefly, Lifecycle of Stuff and the Royal Conservatoire) are mounting a programme in Scotland – you can find all the details on the ArtCOP Scotland website.

ecoartscotland is a resource focused on art and ecology for artists, curators, critics, commissioners as well as scientists and policy makers. It includes ecoartscotland papers, a mix of discussions of works by artists and critical theoretical texts, and serves as a curatorial platform.

It has been established by Chris Fremantle, producer and research associate with On The Edge ResearchGray’s School of Art, The Robert Gordon University. Fremantle is a member of a number of international networks of artists, curators and others focused on art and ecology.
