Responding to the visual richness of Edwin Morgan’s scrapbooks, held in Archives and Special Collections, Nichola Scrutton and Zoë Strachan reimagine the scrapbooking and research process through sound and gesture. This improvised performance combines recorded and live sound with spoken word to re-present the diverse materials Morgan collected as bodies (entities) in relation to each other; offering new connections that may be physical, emotional, psychical. Elements of verbal disintegration and moments of absurdity and humour echo Morgan’s own poetic practice and its rootedness in the city of Glasgow.
Some scrapbooks will be displayed after the performance during a Q&A exploring how they inform the palimpsest that Nichola and Zoë create in their sound art collaborations.
