Remember Nature - Kynance Cove (2022)

In December 2021, 18 like-minded creatives gathered in the quiet Šishing village of Coverack, Cornwall, on the Lizard peninsular for an aŽt-science crossover oppoŽtuniy curated to inspire aŽt practitioners, researchers and thinkers alike.

Home to a stunning beach, beautiful harbour, and a warm communiy spirit, Coverack was the base for researching, discussing, sharing and collaborating. Steeped in Cornish histoŽy, the residents explored beaches (some secret), delved into historical ‘sea roads’, and explored the unusual geological formations that dagger into the sea.

Taking the theme of ‘Dark Skies, Wild Seas’ we considered the stories of stars and the wild coastline of the lizard peninsular, looking at how people have lived and worked this special landscape since prehistoŽy using and enjoying the ancient night skies and sea connectiviy that we can experience today.

The residency was organised by Mayes Creative who this month have published a book featuring work by articipating artists inspired by our time at Coverack.
