25% of sales will go to the Art Fund to help secure Prospect Cottage and Jarman’s Legacy .

Lucy Bell Gallery is proud to present an  exhibition that  features  predominantly “unseen” images,  by Derek Jarman’s local friends and fellow film-makers,  often employing Prospect Cottage, and Dungeness as a backdrop.

Derek Jarman (1942-1994) is known as one of our most poetic and  anarchic film-makers and artists, as well as a prominent  gay rights activist. He started his career as a stage designer,  working as Ken Russell’s production designer for “The Devils” 1971.

Jarman's early films were experimental Super 8mm shorts, a form he never entirely abandoned, developing further in his films Imagining October (1984), The Angelic Conversation(1985)The Last of England (1987) and The Garden (1990). In 1977 he made “Jubillee” which has been described as "Britain's only decent  Punk Film" featuring punk figures Wayne County, Jordan, Toyah Willcox and Adam and The Ants.  It is  Caravaggio though that is probably Jarman’s most widely known film, in which he worked with actress Tilda Swinton for the first time.

Art Fund needs to raise £3.5m by 31 March 2020 to purchase Prospect Cottage and to establish a permanently funded programme to conserve and maintain the building, its contents and its garden for the future. More than 25years after his death, Prospect Cottage continues to be a site of pilgrimage for people from all over the world who come to be inspired by its stark beauty and Jarman’s legacy. The cottage and its contents are now being sold following the death in 2018 of Keith Collins, Jarman’s close companion in his final years, to whom he bequeathed the cottage. Over 3,000 people have donated to the Art Fund's campaign to save Prospect Cottage in its first two weeks. To find out more how and to donate visit www.artfund.org/prospect.

BOWIE CELEBRATION

CUTTLEFISH
Cuttlefish are nearly all exported to the continent, but the Eurozone crisis has made this more difficult, so we need to develop a market for them here in the UK, something we're happy to do. At HASTINGS TV we thought you would like to support our friends on the beach as they truly are, the soul of our community. Sussex Sea Fisheries Committee has judged the level of fishing well within sustainable limits. They’ve also started to lay artificial substrate in breeding areas to provide a safe place for eggs to develop away from greedy predators. Shop local !!
