Pupils from schools throughout Cornwall have been busy researching the impact World War One had on their families, local communities and Cornwall as a whole. Information has been gathered from various sources including interviews, visits to WW1 sites and Cornwall Record Office.The pupil's response to these experiences both artistically and philosophically form the basis of this exhibition, in a sense it is one young generation talking to another, separated by a century.
Roy Ray, St Ives artist, thinker and renaissance man has created 'Trenches' using fragments of letters, poems, objects and the detritus of trench life creating a poignant reminder of a lost generation.
10-5pm Mon-Sat, 12-4pm Sun Free.
During the Great War, no man's land was the link between opposing trenches and the killing ground for both sides. It also became the improbable meeting place for soldiers during the Christmas truce of 1914. Often a barren wasteland devoid of vegetation, pitted with shell holes and shrouded in barbed wire, it became the horrific canvas for the mechanical slaughtering of millons of young men. The artist explores the nature of this common ground, wrestling with his own emotions and responses and creating a unique and visually stunning testament to the sacrifice of all involved.
Roy Ray, St Ives artist, thinker and renaissance man will be working on his installation 'No Man's Land', from 20-24 October and would be deighted to meet people and talk about his work.
Students from Penrice Academy, Torpoint Community College, St Ives School and Callington Community College have been working with Cube Theatre to produce a video art installation in the cathedral exploring themes of war through drama music and sound. Free
