November – December 2018
Growing is a collaborative exhibition with artist Gareth Brindle Jones. The show contains paintings, photographs, digital compositions and installations which centre around a 10 minute film.
Essentially the film and exhibition are about identity – the central character, Joe, is dissatisfied with his life. He thinks the answer to his happiness lies in a beard and the identity and masculinity it might provide. Sadly for him it’s not such a quick or easy task to grow a beard. He searches out tricks and shortcuts to rapid growth. He tries using the techniques he spots along the route to work one day. These ingredients become part of his everyday life. Joe becomes dependent on the emotional crutches used by many of us each day in trying to find happiness and identity, food, drink and cigarettes.
ANWELEDIG / UNSEEN
November 2018 – January 2019
Marking their 10 year anniversary, Unseen shows a specially commissioned study of the ‘unseen’ aspects of the Centre.
Unseen is a two part exhibition occupying Project Spaces A & B.
Fleeting, transient moments, often missed by the casual observer. Fascinating scenes, playing out in real life that are overlooked and often ignored, but that make up the moments of our daily lives.
Project Space A shows my street photography images from around the world. Unseen describes the experience of the photographer, passing unnoticed through a scene, never interfering with the unfolding story, just observing and recording it. Coupled with this are the subtle, often secondary, unseen meanings to be found within each image.
Project Space B shows a specially commissioned study of the ‘unseen’ aspects of the Centre – exhibition change-overs, art-handling, packing, display and the incredibly dedicated and skilled work it takes to bring the exhibitions to life.
