My new work Gwyrdh Glas - Liwyow a Gernow showed in Redruth in October as part of the inaugural Flamm festival, in partnership with Art Night and as part of Counterpoint Arts’ Platforma 7 programme.
I was one of four artists commissioned to make new work for Flamm, which also included work, performances and screenings by artists from across Cornwall. Gwyrdh Glas - Liwyow a Gernow, sits within my broader MESKLA | Brewyon Drudh project, and comprises of my first publicly exhibited film with a sculptural installation of rubbish sculpture rocks made during public workshops. You can find out more here.
For more information and documentation of the Flamm festival by Sam Bestwick and Nick Cooney, please head to the Flamm website.
