Over the past year, Jonny Hannah has taken his ability to absorb, conjure and reflect fantastical places to Hartlepool, working towards Shipbuilders and Fisherfolk, an exhibition based on the town’s legends, stories and psycho-geography that has been commissioned to commemorate the Tall Ships Race visiting Hartlepool in 2023. The exhibition runs from June until November 2023, with installations at Hartlepool Art Gallery and the Museum of Hartlepool.
Let There Be Light, is the result of Jonny’s time spent exploring Hartlepool with psycho-geographers Murdo Eason and Gavin Parry. As Jonny describes, “in this book, you have what we found, heard, tripped over and photographed, thunk and scribbled.”
Shipbuilders & Fisherfolk is our new Amber Ale, available for a limited time only at the Crafty Monkey Shop. Hope to see you at Jonny’s exhibition and at the Tall Ships 2023.
