A gestational period during lockdown
Take this opportunity to purchase and renovate your very own second home. Get away from it all’ to the idyllic landscape of sun, sea and surf West Cornwall.
Filmed in a gorge in a stream in West Cornwall that violently flash-flooded in 2008 by a localized storm off the Atlantic. A car was swept into the gorge, three young people lost their lives.
A concertina artist book in two versions - one digitally printed, one hand drawn/made. Again working with Anna Mace.
"Poniou 25/5 considers the effect of coastal flooding, moving the focus to a stream in West Cornwall. The work has been revisited since it was last shown so that rather than a series of canvases snaking across the wall it is now cantilevered across a steel structure. Whereas previously the work reinforced the swollen waterway as a boundary, it now creates a transparent border with its grid like structure allowing for multiple viewpoints through and between the work. In much the same way that Biggs’ work alludes to the conversational capacity of borders in mapping, the physical display of Poniou creates conversations between other works within the exhibition whilst still physically dividing the space."
