STRATA: Structures, Transformation, Solidarity
Jacob Cartwright and Nick Jordan
installation view, Experience Barnsley Museum, 2018
Strata: Structures, Transformation, Solidarity is an exhibition by collaborative artists Jacob Cartwright & Nick Jordan, exploring themes relating to the region’s social, cultural, industrial and natural histories, and forges connections with international locations on the European Route of Industrial Heritage. A centrepiece of the exhibition is a two-screen 40 minute video installation, which combines original cinematography with an atmospheric soundtrack score by Lord Mongo, voices from the community, archive film and audio, forming an immersive and poetic picture of collective memory, shared experience and international solidarity.
Alongside the film, the artists will be exhibiting new drawings made from coal dust, found objects, 3D animation, and banners on loan from the National Union of Mineworkers and Women Against Pit Closures.
