Cabinet Voyages: coastal exploration

Over 2013 and 2014, The Cabinet of Living Cinema have embarked on a series of routes that seek to rekindle the exploration of the remote, wild and “hidden” stretches of Britain’s West coast first pioneered by the early sea-cliff climbers of the 1900s. These stretches are not only places of unparalleled natural beauty and home to fantastical formations – caves, blow-holes and arches- but they are also muses for writers, artists, musicians and poets, places of ship-wreck and supernatural dwelling.

In the summer of 2013, the first Cabinet Voyage of this kind was conducted to explore the life and love of Paul Nash, the English surrealist painter, along a stretch of the Dorset coast that had been his inspiration for exploring the notion of the “found object”.
