This Is My Church
29 May – 06 June 2021
Opening: Fri 28 May, 5-9pm
The audio pieces were created around a collection of audio interviews (2-3 per cultural snapshot) with subjects who share their prime with the space in question, recounting vignettes of memory that encapsulate their emotional connection with the space and time. The focus will be on individual moments, no longer than a single night, to build a picture using a microcosm of shared experience. The result will be an immersive piece – somewhere between art and documentary, a cultural snapshot that watches through an unreliable lens of memory – more concerned with feeling than fact.

Going under the moniker ‘Tell Me About Your Mother’, Barnes produces various solo and collective projects that span from visual and performing arts to music and everything in-between. Though relatively new to the art world, Barnes has been involved in ‘weird’ projects and events throughout his entire life, running his own free music and performing arts festival, ‘Edfest’, for eight years. In early 2021 his piece, ‘The Balloon’, was screened in the window of Folkestone’s Quarterhouse during January as part of their Open Sesame project.
As part of the project, a series of six mini documentary projects were commissioned by artists with a vision for all that is left behind, invisible and emerging. The other artists who participated in this project are: Charlotte Chapman, Ewan Golder, Ann Morgan, Tomas Poblete and Ernst Fischer.
