Event Details

Showcase of the work of six artists graduating from Plymouth University’s MA Contemporary Art Practice programme:

Numina, Philip Bath
Philip’s work employs technology to draw attention to aspects of perception and knowledge, with ‘Numina’ invoking a religious or spiritual feeling.

Death is a Place, Monica Shanta Brown
Monica engages with universal human experiences; Eating, Breathing, ‘Death’…as portals to ontological and metaphysical questions.

Lost Words of the West Country, Caitlin Hennessy
Caitlin studies old (often obsolete) West Country words relating to nature and believes we should celebrate these lost words to better understand, and reconnect with, our natural surroundings.

Ore, Laura Hopes
Laura’s work explores distance in a contemporary reading of the sublime. The anthropocene epoch and sublime both date from the beginnings of the industrial revolution when man’s distance from landscape led to a heightened awareness of the eco-aesthetics of environment.

The Gendered Archive, Juliet Middleton-Batts
This examines personal historical artefacts and transferences, and the female narratives they embody, exploring women as keepers of history and custodians of the past.

The Invisible City, Karen Pearson
The cartographer records the anonymous journeys of urban walkers that catch her attention as they traverse the city centre pedestrian spaces in Plymouth.
