Togetherness: Notes on Outrage presents new works by artists Felicity Hammond, Polly Tootal and Shaun C Badham. Alongside, temporary works and film screenings feature artists Joseph Townshend, Catherine Yass, Jason Wood, Mark Jenkin, Matthew Burgess and Jamie George.

Togetherness: Notes on Outrage celebrates the pioneering work of the architecture critic Ian Nairn whose 1955 edition of Architectural Review, entitled Outrage, revolutionised architectural criticism.

Togetherness: Notes on Outrage at Kestle Barton represents the continuation of an ongoing research project first begun at the London project space, South Kiosk. Having first explored Nairn’s writings within an urban context in London, Togetherness moves to Kestle Barton to focus on Cornwall and Nairn’s writings on the ‘wild’ environment.

For the show, photographer Hammond presents a new large scale collage work, ‘Lands End’ in reference both to the Turner painting of the same name and the potential change in the landscape of the area. Tootal’s large format architectural photographs reference a number of site visits made to new residential and business developments across Cornwall, the South-West and wider England over the past year.

A recent graduate from Goldsmith’s MFA programme, Badham presents MORNING: A long term research project that explores the correlation between a series of ‘space race’ influenced climbing frames and the post war New Towns movement. 

Togetherness: Notes on Outrage at Kestle Barton was made possible with funding from Arts Council England.
