This performance concluded an open-studio residency at Glasgow Project Room (25th April – 8th May 2022), during which Zoe Strachan and Nichola Scrutton engaged in a process of ‘test-pitting’ to develop new work around themes of excavation as a means of opening an aperture onto fragile lines of connection between inner and outer landscapes. In archaeology a test-pit is a trial, a delving in to reveal layers, fragments of artefacts, the potential of a site of enquiry. It enables a snapshot of composition and decomposition, of life cycle and decay in the earth. Photographs, drawings and tracings mapped the process, leading to an exhibition and public performance on 6th May 2022. We worked with composed sound, field recording, composed text and found text drawn from our previous work, as well as works by Roland Barthes and John Berger.
