noun (plural: OOPARTs)
Abbreviation: ‘Out of Place Artefacts’
Objects of historical, archaeological or cultural importance found in a location that challenges the established historical timeline.
OOPARTs is a collaborative sculpture and performance project with Bristol-based artist Ben Hartley.
OOPARTs is an exhibition about objects and storytelling, about how objects act as vessels for the stories bestowed on them through folk tradition and community play, and their importance in the construction of heritage and identity. Throughout the exhibition, the artists ask the question, how do everyday objects become vessels for myths and legends?

PLAGUE STONE PARTY are here to retell some of the wonderfully weirdest legends the Ireland and Wales ever spat out of their ancient caves.
Expect clowning, puppetry, and 90s trance anthems weaving together misfit mythology and f*cked up folklore as you journey through the Hellmouth into the unknown realm of the chaos goddess Mórrigan
