BA(Hons) 2nd year Photography

Join us to celebrate a week long exhibition by 69 local, national and international students from the BA (Hons) Photography course at Falmouth University. Every year the 2nd Year Photography students hold an end of year exhibition, showcasing the culmination of their year-long endeavours. This year’s students not only seek to redefine the use, function and role of photography in the 21st century, but to also define and determine their own futures within today’s Brexit discourse. Working in photography, video, installation and performance, Nova is a group exhibition highlighting a diverse range of approaches to each students practice, illustrating each individuals perspective of the world around us. The word Nova has its origins in the late 19th century: from Latin, feminine of novus ‘new’ (because such stars were thought to be newly formed). We therefore wish to shine a beacon of light on the achievements within our photographic practices thus far, and imagine what kind of creatives we might become in the future.

'Tandem'

‘TANDEM' - an art exhibition by Aimee and Jennie Jewitt-Harris, exploring life, colour, memory and scale. Aimee studied Illustration at Falmouth, and combines her artistic practice with ceramics.

This exhibition is the culmination of works made together, using their different experiences to create and respond to each other on the canvas, resulting in a dialogue of colour imagery, and ideas. Jennie and Aimee will typically each start a painting and then swap their canvases, having no say or influence on what the other will add. Preview evening open to all on Tuesday 30th July 6-8pm.
