between the other things, and the sorrys is an installation of new and recent works by Redruth born artist Liam Jolly.

About

With a practice that has included working with buskers, footballers and second-hand car dealers, his work is varied – making paintings, film, sound, poetry, performance, and public interventions — exploring archetypes, seriality, and personal biography.

Here he reflects on his complex relationship to two very different Redruths, the place he grew up, and the place he now lives and works. Buoyed by the ghosts that occupy this forever-changing space, this is an ode to the town he calls home. An ode to the ever-evolving high street, to closure, to change, and to hope. To the end of one thing, but the start of something else.

By accumulating and layering source material from personal memories, recycled work, and fragments from the everyday, this work reflects on identity, subjectivity, legacy, and desire.

Practicalities: This site is wheelchair accessible.
