Dreysa | The Unsteady Now

Join us for the open­ing night on Thurs­day 2nd March 17:30 onwards, all welcome!

The Unsteady Now brings together the work of ten Cornwall based artists, known collectively as ‘Dreysa’. The group have a wide range of practices, working across a range of media to explore diverse themes from pertinently contemporary perspectives. Whether untangling aspects of politics, environment, science and religion, or articulating concepts of place and the self, each artist operates with an awareness that in these times the ground on which we stand is inherently unstable: ideas must be challenged, histories unraveled and normality redefined.

The exhibition extends out from the Penwith Gallery, with a four-day installation at St Nicholas Chapel, on the Island, and a presentation of print work on show at Porthmeor studios from 2nd to 18th March, which will then tour to Ocean Studios in Plymouth.

Dreysa was formed as the result of a nine-month period of conversation, networking and creative exploration facilitated by Field Notes and made possible by Cultivator as part of their programme of Graduate Support, supported by the European Regional Development Fund, HM Government, Arts Council England and Cornwall Council.
