Live Art Falmouth (LAF) 2008
Wellington Terrace and other venues Falmouth 6th and 7th June, 2008
Live Art Falmouth had a distinctly
international flavour this year, and with over 100 artists taking part it was
bigger than its first incarnation in
last years review). The
organisers Paul Carter and Alexandra Zierle and their student and alumni
team actively recruited artists from around the UK, Europe and beyond to
achieve a largely seamless blend of students, recent graduates, and more
The UCF-owned building on Wellington Terrace provided the main venue, but there were several off-site art-works located e.g. on the high street itself (Tim Crowley), on Princes Pier (Bram Thomas Arnold), in a chip shop (Katy Connor) and on Gyllingvase Beach (Claire Blundell-Jones).
The following films were made to convey something of the spirit of the event as it might have been experienced by a visitor coming to it.
The films are not intended as definitive records of the art-works. At times performances coincided or overlapped, and this is reflected in the editing. There are also a large number of artists who are missing from the footage. The editor of artcornwall.org is happy to be contacted regarding publishing any other material or documentation that may be made available.
