“A celebration of difference that is sure to ignite and excite the senses. Trelowarren, situated on the granite outcrop called The Lizard, is the most perfect setting for this special exhibition”
About the project
The title ‘Spontaneous Combustion’ encapsulates the essence of the project, which is a promotion of raw creative impulse, the focal points being intuition, passion, compulsion and obsession.
If the boundaries are widened to include a less mainstream and purposely diverse selection of the artistic community, using criteria to ‘fit the theme’, a synthesis can occur This, we believe, will be far more powerful both visually and experientially than events, which tend toward a somewhat safer, more marginalized, sector of our Artist communities. Provided issues to do with quality are considered with care and sensibility toward the ‘whole’ aesthetic, we believe that it is possible to create, interact with, and observe a truly significant cultural event.
We hope that you see this exhibition for what it is, in the spirit in which it was intended -A glorious showcase of the passionate and the intuitive, our way of celebrating difference, in dedication to those of us that just are!
