Rebecca Birch’s ongoing investigation around a lichen-covered stick takes on a new stage at fig-2 premises. Lichen Hunting on the West Coast, is an expanding multiple channel media and drawing installation, accompanied by a series of conversational encounters between the artist and audience. A particular lichen-covered stick has travelled with Birch since 2011, after casting a shadow across her dashboard during a road trip performance work with artist Dan Coopey. Birch produces the incident as re-enactments, anecdotes, narratives that are performed in dialogue with the audience. This new body of work informed by following trace-lines of the stick emerges as performance in two parts, the first to take place at the opening night on Monday between 6 and 8 pm, and the latter on five consequent afternoons between 3 and 6 pm. The projections produced during the second part through one-to-one encounters will be added onto the body of the installation. Thursday late at fig-2 will host a studio visit to Birch, where she will give a talk about her exhibition and her new research on waulking songs and weaving communities in Scotland between 7 and 8 pm.
