Working with volunteer researchers over several months, we unearthed the amazing history of Plymouth Arts Centre's city location, revealing a complex, interwoven palimpsest of place.There have been builidngs there for over 500 years with a history to match, from the early days of John Hawkins and Francis Drake, to the social philanthropism of the Batter Street Non-Conformist Church, through the socila welfare of Nancy Astor and the Virginia House Settlement, to the establishment of the Arts Centre in 1947 and its work since then.
Kestle Barton, Helford, Cornwall
5-10 November 2017
A 5 day practice-based research residency convened by artist Bram Thomas Arnold, delving into the depths of place, a washing back and forth between the past and the future, between the self and the collective.
PLACE EXPLORATION examined the location, Kestle Barton, through ecological and autoethnographic lenses. Artist provocateurs ruminated on the idea of the self in and of a place, whereby both the self and the place are compositions of social, cultural and personal histories: participating artists responded and rebelled.
