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.
