CORNWALL ART BIENNALE – Wednesday 7th August, 2013
Among the artists who contributed:
Robert Curgenven (1974) draws on the physicality of sound, not just the physical impact on the body but how it can shape our perception of space and the flow of time.
“Behind the music lurks such [disparate] presences as Alvin Lucier, King Tubby, Murray Schafer and Eliane Radigue.” – The Wire (UK)
Beatrice Brown is a young talented artist who sees art as a revolutionary act, a means out of the solipsist trap to connect with others, and at times also a political commentary on how she experiences the strain of the British class-system, world injustice and capitalist nonsense at large.
ATOI (Amy Thomas and Oliver Irvine) have worked in collaboration over the past six years. The duo formed from a shared passion in using sculpture as a means of creating psychological situations, installations, performances and sculptural environments. In their time collaborating they have exhibited extensively throughout Europe, with solo shows in China at CEAC and large scale immersive installations and events at the Tate Modern Tanks, Tate Britain and the Garage Centre For Contemporary Culture in Moscow. They have also instigated many projects, and two galleries in the UK.
Roger Thorp is a film-artist based at CAST in Helston. His recent shows include Dwell 18.5:1 for The Dark Rooms and The Fountain Project for the James Turrell Skyspace at Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens.
For over 20 years Tony Plant has made ethereal, time based works to be washed away. His works are as simple as coloured water, a track through snow, or a group of painted rocks – left for nature to absorb and passersby to discover.
Peter Kirby is an artist and writer living at the end of a dirt track in Cornwall with his wife and daughters. His work has appeared in galleries, books, museums, festivals and streets around the world, including Tate St Ives in collaboration with Richard Long and the first 2 London Architectural Biennales. His most recent show, ‘Abridged Sentences for Sol LeWitt’, at LA-based Material Press Project Space, can be seen here
The Barefoot Amphitheatre was created early in 2012. Tom Baxter was the first artist to perform here on September 1st.
The Amphitheatre is available for humanist weddings and dry hire.
