Archives are considered pristine, unchangeable. In Triple Harvest – The Archives, artists challenge how true our remembrances of the past really are as the mythic and historic share space, both bolstering and undermining one another.


Triple Harvest – The Archives is an exhibition of commissioned video work and objects from artists alongside items from Corby Borough Council’s heritage collection.

Artists were invited to create new narratives through the extraction of material from four Corby heritage films, including: Peter Paul’s 1960’s documentary film Double Harvest, which told the story of the Steelworks’ impact on Corby, where the land was harvested for iron ore, returning to farmland for future crop yields; PLUTO: Corby’s role in making the Pipeline Under The Ocean, which supplied the Allied Armies during the D-day landings and subsequent invasion of occupied Europe; The Great Jib: A story of the ingenuity and skill of the workforce at Corby Steelworks during the making of what was the biggest walking dragline excavator between 1947-1951; and Iron Ore in Britain: The mining and extraction of iron ore and its use in steel making.
