In Summer 2017, MIMC took the opportunity to run a series of solo exhibitions within the Alchemy Film & Arts space on Hawick High Street.
Patrick Rafferty | Rhythm, Routine and Ritual
20 and 22 July 2017 | Hawick
The first part of an ongoing project, using still and moving image. Patrick examines how intertwined, yet partitioned our lives can be. Routine and Ritual explores causality and entropy, light and shadow, growth and decay.
Beverley Cornwell| On Exhibit
27 and 29 July 2017 | Hawick
A compilation of short films by Beverley Cornwell that explores themes that emerge when looking at exhibited animals as objects and art, and investigates the way we share our spaces with animals in museums, zoos, and art galleries.

Minus Nine explores a range of themes and maps the artist’s journey as a filmmaker. Myths and legends are retold, Berwick is at war with St. Petersburg, the American dream is represented in found footage and red lights cast a spell.
