Lunchtime talk: When Fire Burns Cotton

Join artist Mary Flower to find out about her film, When Fire Burns Cotton, currently screening in the Geology gallery

The film looks at the standing stones in Stanton Drew in Somerset which sit below the flight path of Bristol Airport. Mary’s film blends close-up footage of the ancient stones during a slow winter dawn with eerie imagery of planes coming into view. Initially the planes are unidentifiable, until the roar of the engines announce their presence.

This is an opportunity to meet Mary and understand her thinking behind the work.

Designed to fit around your lunch hour, our lunchtime talks explore a selection of treasures from our exhibitions and collections.
