Cot: A Cornish Valley (2017)
Catalogue to accompany Kurt Jackson's 2017 solo exhibition Cot: A Cornish Valley at the Jackson Foundation Gallery, St Just.
Made up of a diverse range of media including immense canvases, small intimate studies, film, ceramics and sculpture, this beautiful, ambitious body of work sees Jackson explore the impact the Cot Valley’s watercourse has had on its surroundings; the hamlets that sprung up around its banks, the crops it propagated, the changing wildlife it nurtures, and the industry that relied on its current to turn the mills and pan for tin before become a barren post-industrial landscape and its recent regeneration.
For this show the Foundation has partnered with the RSPB and their Cornish Chough Project which is working to increase numbers of the endangered Cornish Chough and the University of Exeter who offer an insight into the local geology of this beautiful valley and its unique raised beach.
