Event description

Description

Join us for a unique event in the Exhibition Galleries at Experience Barnsley Museum in The Town Hall for the official launch of Strata: structures, transformation and solidarity.

A new film reflecting on the former coal mining communities of Barnsley and its surrounding areas and will be screened at Experience Barnsley, in January 2018, as part of an exhibition by artists Jacob Cartwright and Nick Jordan.

The exhibition, ‘Strata: structures, transformation and solidarity’, explores themes relating to the region’s social, cultural, industrial and natural histories. A centrepiece of the exhibition is a two-screen video installation, which combines landscape and architectural cinematography with voice-over interviews and archive film, forming an immersive picture of place, shared experience and collective memory.

In light of extensive environmental and social change, Cartwright and Jordan’s film installation draws connections between former coal-mining sites in Barnsley and South Yorkshire and comparable locations across Europe. The film captures the ways in which former collieries have been transformed, framing both the similarities and differences resulting from structural, ideological and cultural change.

The exhibition forms part of Meeting Point2, a year-long project led by contemporary art agency Arts&Heritage.
