Cabinet of Living Cinema presents
The Kingdom of Paul Nash
British surrealist Paul Nash died in a guest-house in Boscombe on the 11 July 1946, having spent his last days revisiting the landscapes around Swanage that inspired his work. In their own sea-voyage, the Cabinet collected images of the Purbeck cliffs from ten caves accessible only by sea.
Using this inspiration, musicians from the Cabinet recreate Nash's journey through graphic novel animation and sung ballads, featuring cello, viola, dulcima, banjo and guitar. This secret world of colour and unearthly sound is brought to life with projected images of Nash's work, exploring the artistic and philosophical ideas shaped by his encounter with the Purbeck landscape.
