Walk @ Full Moon July 31st

Chalk Up

Experiential walk, Sensing and Seeing, with artist Joanna Jones along the white cliffs of Dover on Friday, July 31st at full moon. Joanna ‘s paintings emerge through a process more sensed than seen. The walk will start at the National Trust visitor centre in daylight, entering the underground labyrinth of Fan Bay Shelter, hewn in the chalk to house up to 200 troops in WW2, at dusk and re-emerging at sunset by the 2 newly unearthed sound mirrors from 1914 and 1917, overlooking the Channel, and originally contructed as sound amplification devices to warn of planes approaching. The return journey along the cliffs will be by moonlight, finishing at the visitor centre for a screening of a short film entitled La Mer, a collaborative piece by Joanna, film‐maker Dominic de Vere and the Trio Apaches. The evolution of a painting accompanies an interpretation of Debussy’s La Mer, in three movements, by Sally Beamish for the Trio Apaches. Debussy started his work in 1903 in France and completed it in 1905 at the Grand Hotel Eastbourne on the English Channel coast.

The whole Sensing and Seeing experience draws participants into the vision of the artist, exploring light, colour, sound and place.
