Below The Blanket

Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh.

Marking twenty-five years of 'ravishing the senses', Cryptic presents Below the Blanket, a series of new artworks installed throughout the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and inspired by one of Scotland's most extraordinary and unsung natural features.

The Flow Country is the world's largest blanket bog, a vast mass of peat and Sphagnum moss, shot through with hundreds of lochs, that covers 200,000 hectares in Caithness and Sutherland. Home to many rare animals, birds, insects and plants, the peat also acts as a natural store for carbon, helping to offset the effects of climate change.

Artists Kathy Hinde, Lucy Holland, Hannah Imlach, Heather Lander, Matthew Olden and composer Malcolm Lindsay have made work responding to this stimulating setting, drawing inspiration from the Flow Country's wildlife and soundscape, the gradual process of peat formation, and even the way the blanket bog 'breathes' as it expands and contracts. Visitors to the gardens will encounter artworks that are evocative, emotive and beautiful, and will come away enlightened about this unique Scottish landscape.

Below the Blanket is presented as part of The Peatland Partnership's Flows to the Future Project (with RSPB Scotland as lead partner).
