Lumen Studios, London E2, will host the work of over 20 international artists who attended this unique residency at the most southerly point in the UK. The residency was created by Mayes Creatives and Lumen Studios, as part of their Lizard Beacons Communications Heritage Project, to bring together like-minded multi-disciplinary artists in this inspiring part of the SW coast. Benefitting from natural darkness, the beauty of the Cornish coastline and staying next to one of its iconic lighthouses has inspired the artists to explore themes around communication, the harshness and allure of the landscape, and how to capture light and darkness and our presence in the universe.
PV: 7 Nov, 6-9pm
