Signal Film and Media launch their 2018 digital arts programme: Platform, with a brand new incredible exhibition: That Hall is Woven of Serpent’s Spines by Blackpool-born artist Will Kendrick on Wednesday 11th July 6pm- 9pm.
The exhibition draws inspiration from both Norse mythology and the Viking settlements of Barrow In Furness. It’s an immersive exhibition that will include a moving tree sculpture illuminated in the darkness.
Wills work explores the crossover between the real, virtual, botanical and human, questioning the impact of the online world on our perceptions of truth, reality and authenticity.
Everyone’s welcome at the launch evening where there will be free refreshments, a chance to hear about all the exciting free activities Signal Film have coming up this year as part of Platform, and the opportunity to speak to talk to Will about the show’s planning.
