JIM CARTER / JAMIE MILLS
'THE HAIL GLOW'
23/6 - 24/7/2018
‘The Hail Glow’ is a multimedia exhibition by Jamie Mills and Jim Carter concerning relationships between societies perceived outsider and the wild inhabitants and habitats of the Penwith moorland area of Cornwall.
Central to the show’s premise is the publication of a short story by Jim Carter and an audio recording featuring a suite of compositions by Jamie Mills, rendered through acoustic instrumentation, field recordings and processing. The story carries with it a quality akin to that of a traditional fairy tale, complete with the beauty and savagery of the animal kingdom, whilst the music interprets these themes whilst referencing journeys and cycles, loss and redemption.
The exhibition includes sculptures from Carter, formed using organic material and animal remnants found in the landscape, alongside a series of monochrome photographs by Mills, which allude to, and reflect, contemporary ritualistic practice within the Neolithic landscape, exploring broader themes and elements within the narrative. The Hail Glow is a multidimensional experience bringing together interconnected grief and transcendence, the real and the visionary.
