'Homemade' @NewlynArtsFest by Callum Mitchell

'Homemade',  curated by Callum Mitchell


Homemade is an exhibition of film, photography and live performance focussing on themes of identity, memory and place on now at the Newlyn Art Gallery.

As part of Newlyn Arts Festival, a festival within a festival, Homemade is a collaboration between writer Callum Mitchell, filmmaker Mark Jenkin, photographer Michael Eddy, composer Rick Williams and many others...


James Green welcomed all those attending the @NewlyArtsFest opening event alongside Callum Mitchell, curator of the show...


who put together a very personal collection of work...



 from friends like Sarah Woods...



and collaborative piece with Joe Gray which included a 'pound board' (not that anyone but a fisherman would recognise it for what it is/was!)...



 and an accompanying soundscape by Rick Williams...



growing up in Newlyn...



means that evidence of the fishing industry can be seen in almost every piece of work...



in the galleries...



some names...



and faces...



who formed Callum's Homemade landscape...



including the internal installation...



of household objects...



Mark Jenkins A Field in Paul Where the Sun Goes to Bed Every Night provides an opportunity for a contemplative moment in the Lower Gallery space...



while Dion Star's, Marine Debris Typeface...



is explained...



in a series...



of iPad slides...



along with an animated sequence showing...



 how the final typeface was created...



from 2046 individual pieces of plastic flotsam collected from Wherrytown beach.

Great show and a fitting start to @NewlynArtsFest
