29th March - 28th April 2013
Loch Ness, SPZero76, Paul Roberts, Bill Giles and Dom Williams return from an unbelievable adventure to a distant land.
Our heroes travel to a fanciful island where they find flora, fauna, tribes and witness landscapes of a fantastical nature. Their arrival, however, leads to environmental catastrophe and the destruction of the island.
The expedition presents an imagined adventure to an imagined place. While appealing to our sense of adventure and our desire to further our understanding of the world, it also explores the unpredictable effect human intervention can have on an ecosystem. But is this effect due to carelessness or is it entropy?
All that remains and all they could fit into their fictional backpacks will be on show: field sketches, artist renditions, photography, taxidermy, tribal artifacts, maps, diaries and pseudo-educational activity sheets.
Cretin are an artists collective working in Bristol and they specialise in fantastic characters, monsters and bizarre creatures across a variety of mediums such as painting, sculpture and illustration.
