The Future is Not Necessarily Set in Stone | Peter Nash

Film screening and exhibition

Studio 12, First Floor Backwater Artist Group, Wandesford Quay, Cork

Talk & screening Tuesday 22nd October 2019, 6pm.

Exhibition will remain open Wednesday 23rd – Friday 25th October 2019, 10am – 5pm.

The evening event will consist of a brief introduction by the artist to his stop motion animation The Future is Not Necessarily Set in Stone followed by the film’s screening (duration 10 min). Alongside the screening there will be a display of the puppets complete with their props and sets.

This work is a continuation of Peter Nash’s ongoing research into pre-internet sources of knowledge and methods of communication. By embracing a deliberately hand-made aesthetic and drawing on influences including 1970s & 80s children’s television programmes, fairy tales, half-remembered stories and museum visits he seeks to provide a visual counterpoint to the computer generated imagery and plastic sheen that dominate the current era.

This is an informal event to which all are most welcome. There will be some refreshments provided, but please feel free to bring along a few drinks or snacks as we hope for a social evening of art, chats and imagination.
