Gallery Shorts | Simon Bayliss: Meditations in an Emergency

Part one of the 2018/19 South West Showcase, Meditations in an Emergency is a show of brand new work by contemporary artist Simon Bayliss – combining rave music and video with slipware ceramics, en plein air landscape painting, and romantic poetry. Watch our Gallery Shorts film with Simon as he discusses the work.

Acid trance, slipware pottery and rural, queer identity informed Simon Bayliss' exhibition in The Gallery at Plymouth College of Art.

Earlier this year, visitors enjoyed a deliciously purple-hued experience at the opening of The Gallery’s South West Showcase 2018/19, artist Simon Bayliss’s new exhibition, ‘Meditations in an Emergency’. Bayliss’ entrancing show combined rave music and video with slipware ceramics, en plein air landscape painting, and romantic poetry.

We sat down with Simon to talk about his explorations of rural and queer identity, romanticism and a surreal sense of place – watch it now above.
