International artist Emilia Telese presents the UK premiere of her Cornwall-based short art film Life Begins at Land’s End followed by the world premiere of her follow-up piece Life Has Begin at Land’s End at a special public screening this Saturday 26th April from 6pm.
Shot on Porthcurno beach in 2013, Life Begins at Land’s End featured expectant mothers living in Penwith and explored themes of fertility, birth and life rituals. The project was part of World Rebirth Day 2013; a global project described as a worldwide day of change. The film was then screened at the Louvre in Paris as part of renowned Italian artist Michelangelo Pistoletto’s exhibition Michelangelo Pistoletto: Annee’ Un – Le Paradis Sur Terre.
Emilia will screen both films in the museum’s new Clore Learning Space, where she will be joined by some of the women and mothers who took part in the films and made the project possible.
This event is the latest in the museum’s popular Ideas Cafe programme of talks which explore themes across science, history, art and culture. Suggested donation £3.50.
The Telegraph Museum Porthcurno itself remains closed for extensive development, and will reopen this June with major brand new exhibitions, new café and an extensive public events programme.
