Dutch Artist Titia Bouwmeester will live and work at Godrevy to create 'It comes and goes' a 3D poem that will give a sense of the different rhythms of change that are ever present in our natural surroundings. 

You will see her (and her dog Mila) taking 24-hour time-lapse videos from various positions along the beach. Next week her husband Ted Bouwmeester will join her to compose a musical soundscape that will accompany the visuals. 
You will be able to see the final work on the 29 and 30 October. The barn at Godrevy Farm will transformed into a mesmerizing space of sound and image, which will allow you to experience the vastness of Godrevy in a very intimate way. 
Park up and follow the signs. Open from 11am till 5pm 

MISS YOU ALREADY
28-30 October 

The Godrevy residency is part of MISS YOU ALREADY, a Cornish Coastal Eulogy. Collaborating with geographers and historians at the University of Exeter 5 artists created work on three National Trust sites, each telling the story of coastal change from a different viewpoint.

Coastal communities are eternally bracing and yielding to accommodate the dynamic mood of the sea. Although erosion is a natural and unavoidable feature of any coast, it has accelerated over the past decade and extreme weather events are occurring more frequently. The National Trust‘s core purpose is to look after special places forever for everyone, but under influence of the sea many places along the Cornish coast are crumbling, shifting and falling away. How do we respond to these challenges? What do we lose? What do we gain? How do we let go?

Collaborating with the National Trust, local residents, and geographers and historians of the University of Exeter, five artists have been creating work in response to these questions. Their residencies culminate in a weekend of artistic events, palliative walks and community conversations. Creatively imagining how we can cope with rising sea levels.

About the artist

Titia makes site-specific theatre in changing landscapes and communities. She is fascinated by the relationship between landscape and identity. How the landscape forms the character of people and how people shape the landscape. Each time she settles down in a different community, working alongside dairy farmers, fishermen or residents of small villages. In collaboration with a constantly changing team she creates her performances combining vision with practical skills and imagination. Titia was trained at the Art Academy in Amsterdam, worked for 12 years with the renowned theatre company Dogtroep and is now artistic director of 5eKwartier (Netherlands). www.5ekwartier.nl
