- ‘Bella, Maia and Nick (From nothing to something to something else, part 1)’ is again a newly commissioned art work by Manon de Boer. The artist worked with young musicians, filming them over a number of days at Porthmeor Studio in St Ives to reach a point where they become less aware of the camera’s presence recording their experiments with music as a group. http://groundwork.art/programme/manon-de-boer-bella-maia-and-nick/This film is showing until 8 July open Tuesday to Sunday and Bank Holiday Mondays.
- There will also be a new film installed at CAST in Helston – the Groundwork programme hub – http://groundwork.art/programme/francis-alys/it is an accessible and moving work by international artist Francis Alÿs showing young people calling over the ruins of the town of Ani using bird callers to communicate with each other.
