Animism: A Combination of Simultaneous Solo Projects opens at Anima-Mundi


Animism: A Combination of Simultaneous Solo Projects opened at Anima-Mundi on 23/6 and continues until 24/7.


Featuring Harriet Bell, Tessa Farmer, Dr Martin Shaw, Jim Carter & Jamie Mills and opening, appropriately and poetically, the day after the longest day (Summer Solstice), the exhibitions present a selection of unique, multimedia, solo projects, from artists who’s work weaves the prosaic with the romantic, elemental, wild and visionary, under the overarching title of ‘Animism’.

‘Animism’ includes the following projects: ’That Luminous Body That Care of The Soul’ by Harriet Bell, a series of ambiguous, exquisite, works on paper seemingly tracing the journey of souls. Also included is 'Out of the Earth’ by Tessa Farmer, where a number of miniature sculptural dioramas depict an allegorical battle ground between fairies and the animal kingdom. Also featured is ‘The Hail Glow’ from Jamie Mills and Jim Carter, an exhibition consisting of sound, sculpture, photography and story creating a multidimensional experience bringing together human and animal, grief and transcendence, the real and the mystical. Finally ‘Small Gods’ a spoken word sound piece sees celebrated mythologist, author and storyteller Dr Martin Shaw discusses the potent relevance of myth as the perennial language of the earth.

‘Animism’ provides an exciting access point for esoteric and sacred stories, suggesting that the archaic, visionary or mythic may yet have an important role to play in these most turbulent and often disconnected times. 

In far reaching West Cornwall, where ancient stories of man, land and sea emanate, ‘Animism’ creates a valued space for reverie and deep reflective thought.
