Entries for Inland Festival : Assemble now theme 'Interplay'


ARTISTS STATEMENT : Working with collected and found objects that when brought together create new associations to do with childhood. The fragile nature of both memories and concepts of play together allows an association depicting the aspect of initial freedom when young but also inherent boundaries that seem to trap inner fears and create an isolation away from the surrounding adult world.

Pop Up Art evening -
The Sketch House opening night was a myriad of play upon the senses..a mashed up musical memory house box in a darkened booth - no more than a foot wide and five ft height guitar strings hit with toy motors very cleverly playing over a conversation simultaneously flickered on and off slide pictures, video calls, Tarot readings upstairs including directions on how to make a 3D assemblage using the weather as inspiration and an open mike of acoustic songs.  
   Christina Romero Cross's installation. THE HOUSE - nestled bird eggs in the middle of a mattress called for home with a pinhole film that projected down created a glimpse of a journey as the camera toured the interior of the large scale dolls house in the room. Birdsong emitted throughout the darkened interior created a feeling of welcome, warmth and calm. Projections of a family photo shone onto a carefully placed pillow opposite. And a suspended birdcage held within miniature home furnishings of a front room complete with lamplight added to the narrative.

The Poly’s 2014 Exhibition Remembers 1914 Exhibition

Nearly 100 years ago, The Poly (The Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society) was gearing up for its 74th Annual Exhibition, to be held in The Public Hall Buildings, St. Austell. On the 12th August, 8 days after war was declared, the Trustees decided not to go ahead with the exhibition. One hundred years on from that momentous day, The Poly is about to hold its Annual Members’ Summer Exhibition, featuring over 40 artists and over 200 works of art. Dot Peryer, Exhibitions Manager said:

Our Annual Members’ Exhibition is a high-point in our galleries calendar. We are really lucky in Falmouth to be surrounded by so many wonderful artists. In 1914, leading artists such as Henry Scott Tuke and Lamorna Birch would have been exhibiting with us and we know that one day, some of our current crop of artists will also become household names. Most of the work in the Exhibition is for sale, so this is a chance for people to buy an original piece of art that they can love and enjoy, and it might be an investment for the future.”

The exhibition features water colours, oil paintings, pen and ink and charcoal drawings, as well as ceramics, textiles and glass. There is something in the exhibition to suit all tastes, whether it be traditional, contemporary or just plain quirky.

The Exhibition runs from 5th – 16th August, from 10.00 a.m. – 5.00 p.m. (excluding Sunday, 10th August), and is held in the Main Gallery on the top floor of The Poly.
