Janet Cardiff - Forty Part Motet - (Published or amended 2018-04-23)Print details for Janet Cardiff - Forty Part Motet  CACD id E.10102

Friday, 25th May 2018 until Monday, 27th August 2018

Janet Cardiff’s internationally acclaimed sound installation Forty Part Motet (2001) is at Richmond Chapel in Penzance, a former Wesleyan Chapel and Grade II listed building, usually closed to the public. Cardiff has reworked 16th-century composer Thomas Tallis’s choral masterpiece Spem in alium nunquam habui by recording 40 individual male voices from the Salisbury Cathedral Choir (bass, baritone, alto, tenor and child soprano) and playing each individual voice through its own speaker. The speakers are carefully positioned in eight different groups of five. Each group forms a choir of five singers with different vocal ranges so that the visitor can move amongst the 40 speakers to listen to single voices, or be immersed in the overall complexity of the choral ensemble.
The recording took place in a hall on the grounds of the cathedral. When the singers took a break during the three-hour session, Cardiff and sound editor Georges Bures Miller decided to keep recording; the singers talking and other sounds can be heard as an interlude in the final work, creating an intimate, direct connection between singers and listeners.
A Groundwork exhibition presented by Newlyn Art Gallery and The Exchange.
Groundwork is a season of international contemporary art in Cornwall from May to September 2018. With a focus on place and an emphasis on moving image, sound and performance, the programme presents new commissions made in Cornwall, together with existing works by internationally acclaimed artists. Groundwork is organised by Helston-based arts organisation CAST (Cornubian Arts and Science Trust).
Launch Weekend: 5 - 7 May 2018

A new body of work initiated by time Frears recently spent working alongside students and staff at Plymouth University.

Rose Wylie at Newlyn Art Gallery - (Published or amended 2018-04-03)Print details for Rose Wylie at Newlyn Art Gallery  CACD id E.10093

Saturday, 9th June 2018 until Saturday, 15th September 2018

History painting.
Rose Wylie is best known for creating colourful, large-scale, figurative paintings that are smart, funny, and quietly political. These are usually made from memory and draw on a wide range of cultural references from history, fashion and cinema, to mythology, sport and literature. The thread linking these fields is her interest in how images evolve and accumulate meaning – becoming familiar, iconic and part of the narrative of popular culture and wider history.
The large scale paintings at Newlyn Art Gallery include three recent works inspired by the Pilgrims ship the Mayflower voyage, which had a final landing at Newlyn to take on fresh water before sailing to America in 1620. In the lower gallery we will present Ben Rivers’ film What Means Something (2015) which reflects on his friendship with Rose, her painting and the artistic processes they have in common.
History Painting is a Plymouth Art Centre exhibition and curated by Ben Borthwick. The exhibition will be shown across both our venues.
