Ojārs Feldbergs Artist Talk & Stone Planting

Last week we had Latvian artist Ojārs Feldbergs in residence with us, invited by George Beasley. On Friday Ojārs gave a talk about his practice in the Communities Room at SSW, describing his stone encompassing practice after serving whiskey and food on stones collected nearby. We then had a great potluck dinner in the Bothy.

The next day saw Ojārs with the help of his assistant, Lara, perform Stone Planting at the Huntly Hairst Festival. The blessing of the stone took place near the River Bogie in Huntly and the second part of the planting happened atop a hill near SSW. Here are some photos from the events:
