Curators: Students from the MA Curatorial Practice at University College Falmouth
Exhibition runs from 13th May – 9th July
This two-person exhibition presents the sound recordings of Chris Watson with Phoebe Cummings’ site-specific installations of unfired clay.
Creating an immersive acoustic environment within the gallery Chris Watson’s pieces record the haunting sounds emanating from telegraph wires as the wind interacts with them. details from the Cornish landscape in Phoebe Cummings’ sculptural installation, commissioned specially for this exhibition, create an interplay of exquisite miniature scenes and life-size fragments of landscapes.
Both artists investigate the passage of time in relation to specific geographical locations; revealing aural and visual elements that are often overlooked. This experiential exhibition is an invitation to explore poetical documentations of landscapes, histories, technologies and communications.
The partnership between Newlyn art gallery and MA Curatorial Practice at University College Falmouth offers exceptional opportunities for students to develop a curatorial practice through a live project.
