Clouds of Witness
13 September to 11 October 2014
CYMYLAU TYSTION/ CLOUDS OF WITNESS Is a cross-cultural visual arts project built around the shared experiences and individual perceptions of two, minority language speaking, multi-disciplinary artists: Ciara O Flynn from the (West Kerry Gaeltacht, Ireland) and Naomi Heath (Llanafan, west Wales). Aware of the precarious state of these cultures and the disjunction of their position in popular culture and the future, O’Flynn and Heath are setting out to create a body of work to express the varying highs and lows of engaging in and being part of minority language speakers and their place in contemporary Western Europe. This body of work is the fruit of a 4 week residency with the farming community of the Dyfi valley in Wales followed by a 2 week residency on Ynes Ennli (Bardsey Island).
