Not long until 19th to 21st September LLAWN – Llandudno Arts Weekend I will be over at Haus of Helfa with my projection in response to Llandudno’ lost buildings. My short film in response to Gareth Griffith work in situ with his installation and the spoken word of Rhys Trimble. Also due to the Response my video for the Llandudno IPP event My Tedder house Lost space will also be on show to the general public.

I was asked to respond to some of the history of Tedder House in Llandudno for Ideas People Places, working alongside Marc Rees, Lisa Carter and Helfa Gelf. Now standing empty stripped back to the bare bricks, all the that remains of the old R.A.F.A Club are stories and a few artefacts amongst the surviving members. After meeting with several people who were involved with the old club I was able to piece together a few memories and bring some of this once great town instution back to life. The work was projected onto a trophy cabinet from the old club on the opening night, and club members were invited to see it, there will be another opportunity to see the film in September during Helfa Gelf.

Helfa Gelf


HG_RD&AW_A5.inddHelfa Gelf is almost upon us. This is my maiden voyage into an event i have supported for a long time. I feel as I have grown as an artist Helfa Gelf, each year has cultivated me into new sprouts of direction and appreciation. I have covered all the counties the event covers Denbighshire, Flintshire, Conwy and Gwynedd seeing many skills and disciplines. So with all this in mind I feel its my duty to deliver something different over the 4 Saturdays I will doing. This gave me the great opportunity to work alongside Ronan Devlin in collaborative venture ‘One Year On’. His knowledge and guidance have been a necessity to me. Its been 1 year since we met Via chance email through Ffoto Alternative (it seems a lot longer) We have decided to show work over the past year which approached from different angles but links between both our practices is uncanny. This culminates in us producing a series of screen prints which is a new practice to us both. Anyway enough of this I don’t want to spoil the surprise. If your taking part good luck! If not come along and see us…

 

Secret Location for #helfagelf


So I’m all packed and ready yo depart for Sicily tomorrow morning. However last night i had a bit fun projecting in a secret location for something i am doing for Helfa Gelf at the end of the years. it will involve 1960’s cine film projection and my words. It was a long night waiting for it to go dark but the results were worth waiting for.
