Viewpoints 2018 is a project which was devised by Jamie Hanson, Higher Education Team Lead, Cornwall College Camborne in association with Truro Cathedral, and is an opportunity for art degree students to develop and design art pieces that re-interpret the everyday life of the cathedral, helping to covey the deeper meaning of certain items, either symbolically or for the people who use them. Jamie said, “Following a private tour of the cathedral, our second year BA (Hons) Contemporary Creative Practice students were able to document their visit, by photographing certain items and use the images as references. I was looking for art pieces that demonstrated a respect for the beliefs of the Christians who use them, while also raising questions and stimulating debate”.
The finished works will be exhibited in the cathedral from June 27th until July 15th admission is free and people are invited to come and view them.
Jamie added, “This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase the talent and range of artwork created by second year students on our interdisciplinary Contemporary Creative Practice arts degree at Cornwall College. Inspired by Truro Cathedral, working in partnership with the staff of Truro Cathedral”.
