We are a non-profit, artist-led residency, project, and meeting space in Redruth, Cornwall.

Liz Blum

Liz Blum is a research-based artist whose multi-disciplinary approach produces thematic exhibits of photographs, composite photos and digital manipulations along with video and object based works. Liz is interested in a cross fertilisation of appearances that builds a wider narrative of responsibility and ownership towards pollution and climate change – challenging notions of what it means to contribute and impact the environment.

Liz will host an open evening at Back Lane West on Thursday 27th February.

Jacqui Orly

Jacqui Orly will return to Back Lane West as our artist-in-residence this March. Throughout her practice Jacqui is interested in the façades and tools created by civilisation and etiquette that attempt to sublimate the more barbarous side of human nature and how this succeeds and fails across gender and class.
She’ll use her time in the BLW project space to develop The Dream of Separation; a performance about the inability of self to grasp the dual nature we appear to live in and the consequent suffering that feels like separation but isn’t. Jacqui describes this as mysticism at its most ordinary.

Daniel Phillips

His research trajectory examines how contemporary painting practice could have agency in the production of presence, in the context of lost or effaced work from art history. This open evening is a chance to see new work and to speak to Daniel at the culmination of his research residency at Back Lane West.
