The Granary Gallery
Off Bridge Street
Piotr Piasta is a filmmaker and a photographer from the Wieniawa district of Poland, who has spent the past 6 months living and working in Berwick-upon-Tweed as our artist in residence in partnership with the Centre for Rural Economy (CRE) at Newcastle University, a research centre specialising in interdisciplinary social science, researching rural development and policy, food and society, and the wellbeing of rural communities.
During his residency Piotr has spent time with older people in Berwick, listening to stories about life in the town and using this to inform a series of oral history interviews with older people – many who have lived in Berwick all their life.
The resulting series of five short films combine these interviews with archive material from Berwick Record Office and new film footage of Berwick-upon-Tweed and Northumberland shot by the artist, in an attempt to interpret these stories.
