Shot over one day on 16mm film at Treyarnon Bay, Cornwall. ‘Treyarnon’ is part of an ongoing film and photography project. The wider body of work looks conceptually at the presence of repetition and failure in attempts to conceive. ‘Treyarnon’ seeks to embody feelings of scrutiny on the body and attempts to lie alongside nature, whilst feeling apart from it. Shot by filmmaker Rachael Jones, it uses the immediacy and delicacy of 16mm film to transmit feelings of love and longing. It is also a simple depiction of one hot day in Cornwall and two women collaborating with a camera, shooting film together for the first time.
This film was supported by Cultivator funding and selected for ‘Cornish Slates’ screening, 2020.
