Cumbrian Alchemy is an ambitious contemporary art project supported by Arts Council England. It brings together New York artist Bryan McGovern Wilson and British artist Robert Williams in an enquiry that explores the relationships between the nuclear, mining and renewables industries of the north-west Energy Coast, with the landscape, archaeology and folklore of North Lancashire and Cumbria. The project explores what may be imagined in such close proximity to ‘places of power’, be they within landscape, of natural phenomenon, megalithic monuments, or industrial installation. Williams and Wilson have interests in working with impossible materials such as deep-time, ghosts, narrative and imagination.
