The final exhibition brings sculptures made at workshops into an installation, by Sovay Berriman.
MESKLA | Brewyon Drudh (Mussel Gathering | Precious Fragments) is an expanded sculpture project taking place in Redruth, Cornwall, between June & December 2022. This multi-platform art work uses sculpture and conversation to explore contemporary Cornish cultural identity & its relationship with heritage, land and extraction industries, to include tourism.
Conversations are vital to MESKLA, and will take place throughout considering issues of authenticity, fractured culture, the links between identity, land and labour, indigeneity, language and intangible culture.
Through the MESKLA project, Sovay will actively engage with people, seeking and recording their views on identity and Cornwall, and considering how what we discuss relates to broader contexts – historically, nationally and globally. These discussions will be woven into a final sculptural installation that will be exhibited in Redruth
