Opening Hours: 10.00 - 16.00

If you missed The Goonhilly Village Green Gathering back in May, the Museum of Cornish Life, Helston, is offering a second chance to see some of the artwork created especially for the day. 

On show is video documentation of Beth Emily Richards' work 'Welcome (Sent Forever)'. Beth worked with the Museum’s collection, drawing inspiration from the floral motifs, rhythms and rituals of Flora Day to make her work. A collaboration with Daisy Higman, Hum, and Chris Mayoh, Welcome (Sent Forever) took the form of a choral performance at solar noon offering a welcome to both earthly visitors to the Gathering and to any extraterrestrial audiences listening in!

Spread out across the Museum you can also find James Hankey’s film work 'We are a Satellite', 'The Goonhilly Standard' created by Elizabeth Masterton, the remaining collection of Rosanna Martin’s 'Rock Library' and copies of Phyllida Bluemel’s 'Goonhilly Chronicle' to take away and enjoy at leisure. Alongside the works there is information and photographs of The Gathering, as well as some of the artefacts and tools that the artists used in the making of their work.

This display is made possible through the support of; public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund, as well as the ongoing support of FEAST.

The Museum of Cornish Life is open, Monday – Saturday, 10.00 – 16.00, admission is FREE.
