Friday 15 January 2016 – Saturday 02 April 2016
Opening Hours: 1-8.30pm

A looks at contemporary art with a prehistoric feel. Often incorporating synthetic colours and materials and a sci-fi look, many of the artworks are spoof or tongue-in-cheek. An installation by Andy Harper has an ancient, tribal quality, and Caroline Achaintre’s wall hangings evoke primitive cave-dwellings. There are primeval landscape ceramics by Salvatore Arancio, and ape-man meets 2001: A Space Odyssey in a papier-maché boulder by Jack Strange. Vidya Gastaldon’s watercolours mix stories of evolution and creationism, while in a film by Ben Rivers, a man tells how humans and fire first came into being.  The First Humans is curated by Angela Kingston and organised by the Pump House Gallery in collaboration with Plymouth Arts Centre.
