Join us for a screening of The Devil’s Plantation by May Miles Thomas and the launch of Tveito’s new publication Elucidations produced as a result of his HIGHNORTH residency in Glasgow.

The Devil’s Plantation is a haunting psychogeographic journey into the past: 66 films, two life stories and an ancient secret revealed. In the 1980s archaeologist Harry Bell came to believe that Glasgow ­ a city built and re­built on over centuries ­ was laid out to a hidden design. For years he investigated the lost corners and invisible history of the landscape, plotting his Secret Geometry. Unknown to Harry, psychiatric patient Mary Ross also wandered the city, visiting many of the same significant places. Her medical case file reveals a poignant quest to understand her troubled past and present. The Devil’s Plantation unites the lives of these two strangers and by retracing their steps to complete Harry’s quest, unfinished at the time of his death, The Devil’s Plantation tells a timeless story of how we all live.

The publication Elucidations brings together photographs of marionettes shot at one of the world’s leading puppet masters; John M. Blundal’s Collection in Glasgow. With philosophical essays and short stories by Tromsø­born philosopher, luminous stylist and wit, Peter Wessel Zapffe. Poet, dramatist, novelist and short story writer, Heinrich von Kleist from Frankfurt. The obscure Greek lyric poet Sappho of Lesbos and Glaswegian author, publisher and activist Alex Trocchi.
