Talking Stone: The First Cut

April 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

An evening talk with Filippa Dobson.

Artist and PhD student Filippa has been interrogating the landscape of Ilkley Moor, a comparable ritual landscape to Kilmartin, specifically looking at Neolithic cup marked stone.  Her artwork comes from a place situated between art and archaeology and weaves together in one key performance, The First Cut, on the moor with creative critical writing.

Her research began at Kilmartin, travelled along a circuitous route to Ilkley and is returned to Kilmartin by the same path.

Filippa will present her work via PowerPoint slides along with some sculptural objects, small etchings of ‘portable’ cup marked rocks from the locale and artist’s books.  These will be passed around during her talk as ‘archaeological’ artefacts.


This talk is taking place in the Museum Cafe with limited space and therefore, booking is essential, to book either email education@kilmartin.org or phone 01546 510278.

Free event though donations welcome.
