Screening of Trywydd . Voyage
By Bird-Jones & Heald
10 February 2016 1.30pm
Join us in the Oriel Sycharth Gallery for a special screening of Trywydd . Voyage. The event will be introduced by Susan Liggett, Glyndŵr University Reader in Art and Design and Head of the Media Arts and Design Research Centre, and artists Chris Bird-Jones and Karen Heald will talk about their project after the screening.
Bird-Jones & Heald filmed material inspired by collectively viewing significant architectural glass sites, artists' studios and museums throughout France during the 2014 Women's International Stained Glass Workshop. The film captured visual details, including figures silhouetted against illuminated backdrops, hand gestures, composite interiors, changing landscapes and emerging patterns.
Part of this body of research focused on the Welsh artists taking part: Amber Hiscott, Catrin Jones, Chris Bird-Jones and Karen Heald. Trywydd . Voyage explores the intimacy, quality, nuances, details, sensitivity and beauty of the Welsh centric aspect of this journey.
