About

In October last year mining historian Stephen Polglase led a field trip with Anthony Bryant through the mining landscape of Great Work and Tregonning Hill as part of the 2017 Cornwall Workshop, the fourth in the series of artist-led residential workshops organised by CAST and held at Kestle Barton. When asked how miners would prospect for tin, and how they knew when they had found it, he referred to a saying used by Cornish miners to describe the unpredictable nature of their hunt: ’Where it is, there it is’.

The phrase resonated amongst the group of artists, curators and writers participating in the workshop, suggesting parallels with making art – an activity that involves intuition, knowledge, persistence, and something beyond definition. It lingered as the possible title for a collaborative project.

Where it is, there it is has been initiated by artists Liam Jolly and Rosanna Martin and will be the first exhibition in Liam’s new project space, an old auction room near the train station in Redruth.

Participants in all the Cornwall Workshops held since 2011 are invited to contribute and each week a guest will respond to the material submitted. Where it is, there it is will present a range of things – some art, some not.
