Cold Start was an art project and collaboration between Hayley Gearon and Candy Kemp. This included negotiation with a local business, Skoda, for use of their car showroom in Penryn, Cornwall as a site for hosting a contemporary art exhibition.

Using an old primed jaguar car, mirrors a dressing table, carpets and wallpaper we transformed the space into an art installation that explored female identity using film and photography. The car came to represent psychological states of mind of both escape and entrapment with complex mirroring of the internal parts of the car in contrast with disparate scattered female belongings and images.

Funding from Art & Business supported and contributed to the success of this community project.
