Unnanounced interventions based on Doris Lessing’s short story. A group of alien visitors come to warn the inhabitants of a city about pending disaster. To their horror they discover the inhabitants are already aware of the consequences but seem unable to change their behaviour.
Working with artist Ailie Rutherford, young people from Govan High are co-creating a series of interventions. A contemporary take on Lessing’s tale, the group are looking at human responses to climate change and environmental disaster. The work will focus on the alien visitors’ attempts to channel messages through the young of the species.
Unannounced events will be taking place on the periphery and fringes of Art Cop Scotland. Look out for Report From A Threatened City at CCA and around Govan.
