M-V-E-M-J-S-U-N-(P): The HAC at Shunt, 10th – 13th June

Galileo’s Prison by The Heritage Arts Co.
Galileo, the man who once gazed at the moons of Jupiter, went blind under house arrest in the final 8 years of his life. He welcomes you into his cell; talk, listen and you may learn some of the fundamentals that have held him as a champion of the scientific world for 400 years.

An Installation by Edward Fornieles.
Through experiments in hypnotic trance, Edward Fornieles has managed to tap into an internal reservoir of transcendental truths. These truths are relayed back into his art directly and clearly. For the viewer, these works become a scale with which to navigate failure, success and, ultimately, reality.

The Kinetoscope: Film is film and everyone likes popcorn whether it be salt or sweet or a mix of each. We’ve got these, you may have seen them before but that doesn’t make them inconsumable a second time. It’s not like milk – drink some milk (tastes fine), leave the milk, drink the milk (tastes like liquid cheese).

Le Voyage dans la lune (A Trip to the Moon) by Georges Méliès & The ? Motorist by R.W.Paul, both with live accompaniment from Michael Gatsenby.

Love Letters from Heaven (Few are Never Seen) by Tom Duggan and The HAC
The fallen paper graces, dishevelled and bent, a contorted spent lover in the throngs of some wild loveless nightmare. From the ashes of past failures comes new hope from those unknown, disappointment too far away to be foreseen and unfaithful hands type with speed.
