First There is a Mountain - (Published or amended 2019-01-30)Print details for First There is a Mountain CACD id E.10391

Sunday, 14th April 2019

Porthcressa Beach, St Mary’s, Isles of Scilly.
A new participatory artwork by Katie Paterson to be choreographed over British Summer Time 2019.
First There is a Mountain is a new artwork by Katie Paterson that connects the public to the world’s diverse mountains ranges.
Touring from 31 Mar – 27 Oct 2019, the project involves the creation of a set of ‘buckets and spades’ in the form of world mountains, from which the public will be invited to build mountains of sand across the UK coastline and play out the world’s natural geography against a series of tidal times.
The artwork will tour to 25 coastal venues around the UK, who will each stage a sand pail building event on their local beach.
Participants will sculpt beaches into thousands of mountains of sand to form micro-geologies. Join us on Porthcressa Beach to build a range of sand pail mountains.
Each pail is a scale model of five of Earth’s mountains: Mount Kilimanjaro (Africa), Mount Shasta (USA), Mount Fuji (Asia), Stromboli (Europe), and Uluru (Oceania), are nested together. Paterson carefully selected each mountain range via exacting research, using data from NASA’s Shuttle Radar Topography Mission and the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency. The sand pails are made from 100% fermented plant starch and are fully bio-compostable. At the end of the tour, they will be composted, reabsorbing back into the natural environment from which they were created.

Shelly Tregoning - (Published or amended 2019-01-30)Print details for Shelly Tregoning CACD id E.10389

Saturday, 23rd March 2019 until Saturday, 4th May 2019

Sitting. Sat. Standing. Stood.
In this new body of work, Shelly Tregoning continues her exploration of physicality and the interpretation of human gesture. As a painter and printmaker, the artist creates what she refers to as ‘non-portraits’ – images of the figure in which the identity of the sitter is irrelevant, and our instinctive reading of the human form is everything.
Presented as a series of small canvases and monoprints, this collection responds to conversations surrounding the nature of identity in the 21st century, and seeks to reveal the psychological complexities beneath our conscious presentations of self.
All works are for sale. Please ask for a price list.
In The Picture Room at Newlyn Art Gallery.

Invisible Narratives - (Published or amended 2019-01-30)Print details for Invisible Narratives CACD id E.10388

Saturday, 23rd March 2019 until Saturday, 15th June 2019

New Conversations about Time and Place
Rebecca Chesney, Lubaina Himid, Magda Stawarska-Beavan.
“A rural ecologist, an urban drifter and a diasporic optimist examine the invisible layers underneath, the lost spaces on the edge and the forgotten places in between.” Lubaina Himid.
The exhibition explores the work of three artists, Magda Stawarska-Beavan, Rebecca Chesney and Lubaina Himid, who consider the poetic investigation of place, space and time, through painting, sound installation and place-based research.
All three artists use their work to uncover the hidden, understand a place as it is experienced by those who know it well, and remember apparently unknown histories.
Each artist has made new work for the show.
Invisible Narratives is curated for us by Lubaina Himid CBE, winner of the 2017 Turner Prize.
