Time for some fun: come join us for some squishy, glittery, colourful fun and joy!

Open 21st January - 2nd February: Monday - Saturday, 10am-4pm

Private View: 20th January, 7pm-Late


Ankemmyn Collective, a newly-formed group of seven artists from across Cornwall, brings an exciting new exhibition of painting, photography, sculpture and installation to Falmouth in October.

The exhibition will take place at Falmouth’s riverside art gallery The Fish Factory Art Space, just off North Parade. With a special opening evening on Friday 30th of October from 7pm, with drinks, nibbles and live music. The exhibition will be open until 13th November, from Monday to Saturday, 10am – 5pm.

Four artists of the Collective – Sophie Capron, James Eddy, Leo Sharp, and Zenna Tagney – were brought together to represent Cornwall at this year’s Festival Interceltique de Lorient, an internationally renowned Celtic cultural festival held annually in Lorient, Brittany. They displayed their work at the city’s central gallery, alongside artists from the Isle of Mann. The exhibition was a resounding success, attracting record-breaking visitor numbers. The artwork now returns from France to be revealed to a Cornish audience, together with pieces by three new members of the collective – Vivienne Gillard, who was the curator and art coordinator of the Lorient exhibition, John Eddy, and Kirsty Smith, who were also involved with organisation and installation in France. Together they present a diverse range of work that represents the breadth and depth of contemporary art in Cornwall today.

Vivienne Gillard said: “It seemed an overwhelming task to be on the panel to pick four artists from such a wealth of talented submissions which came in from all over Cornwall; (and of course the artists from the Isle of Mann.) But it has been a joy to watch James , Sophie,  Leo and Zenna, four amazing talents gel together, develop and create such a breath taking, successful show. I am now thrilled to add two more artists to the collective and be taking part myself. The opportunities and exposure that Lorient provided for our collective has been invaluable and I look forward to furthering the possibilities.”

Walking Home (Again)

Bram Thomas Arnold. 

Fish Factory, Spring 2015.

For tickets please go to 

Walking Home (Again) is a solo exhibition by the artist, pedestrian and writer Bram Thomas Arnold. The Fish Factory is excited to be showcasing the outcomes of this in-depth meditation on attempting to walk from London to St.Gallen, Switzerland. Walking Home (Again) is an exploration into the dangers and fascinations of memory and interpretation, myth and story telling. The exhibition is a body of work devised and developed through a practice-based PhD at Falmouth University, and will evolve throughout the period of its 3 week exhibition. Bram’s interdisciplinary practice, composed under foot, takes a myriad of forms including drawing, printmaking, video, performance and installation.

Walking Home (Again) includes the presentation of Fondue, a performance-as-dinner-party that takes place in the centre of the main space at the Fish Factory. Fondue walks through architecture, war, monasticism, death & poetry, home and belonging, with piles of molten cheese, home made bread, vinyl records and gold leaf for company. Tickets for these events are strictly limited:
