Archaeology of progress – Redruth
Victoria is a multimedia artist from Kalmykia, Russia, currently based in Berlin. After visiting BLW briefly in 2018 she wanted to return, and enjoyed a two-week residency with BLW in February 2019 taking the opportunity to explore the Cornish landscape, and meet local artists.
Archaeology of progress – Redruth is an audio response to both concrete, elusive and tacit elements shaping the air of the Redruth area. Its landscape, people and folklore reverberate in the industrial dream of a rejuvenating alchemy that, through natural resources, addresses a utopian future.
