St Ruman’s Gardens, Inland Art Festival

21st-23rd October 2016

For the Inland Art Festival KARST sent four current studio artists: Carl Slater, Clare Thornton, Paul Hillon and Rosie King, to intervene with the historic site of St Rumon’s gardens producing a futuristic landscape inspired by an industrial past and an imagined future. The new work presented concepts of time and shelter through an experimental multimedia installation that evolved night & day.

I produced two new works in response to Redruth and St Rumon’s – ‘Shamanic Device No. 2′ made from wood, steel, leather, textile and found materials and ‘Banners for a Future Redruth’ silk screen print on survival blanket.
