With Leona Jones - artists in residence with HYDRO, Llangattock Green Valleys CIC, Brecon Beacons, Wales.

Before the arrival of reliable mains electricity in the Brecon Beacons, many landowners relied on private micro-hydro schemes to generate electricity. Now Llangattock Green Valleys Community Interest Company (LGV) aims to reduce community reliance on fossil fuel and make sustainable energy more accessible through their micro-hydro initiatives.

Thanks to funding from LGV, BBNPA’s SDF, and A&B Cymru’s CultureStep Investment Programme to strengthen and develop our creative partnership with LGV, we will present an audio-visual exhibition accompanied by artist led walks and talks.

Binocular: disturbance

PH_eye6
























Shared concerns from collaboration with Suffolk-based artist Caroline Wright are realised in work that explores the position and experience of the insider and outsider, using TestBed to challenge ideas through drawings, exchange and display of objects, parallel walking, mapping of locations and other works. The Skirrid Mountain, Monmouthshire, located on the fringe of the Black Mountains is our site of investigation as we unpick what it means to be familiar and unfamiliar and the disturbance this causes.

Together Apart: an alternative walk through Abergavenny with Suffolk artist Caroline Wright as part of PEAK‘s fringe programme of cultural talks from border land. National Eisteddfod 2016.

This artist led walk is the first chance to see and hear about work arising from the Arts Council Wales funded collaborative project: BINOCULAR

Many of us instinctively pick up objects on walks, find ourselves putting them in our pockets or holding onto them and wondering, perhaps, about the story behind them. Or we may hold onto objects of significance that have come into our possession in other ways, from a relative, a gift, or even that object that camefrom a cereal packet.

On this short walk around the streets of Abergavenny, artists Penny Hallas (living and working in the Black Mountains) and Caroline Wright (living and working in Suffolk) will explore themes of insider /ousider through introducing some of the objects they have discovered on opposite sides of the UK. Narratives will mesh as objects are taken out of context and re-placed, and the emotions of a stranger are contrasted with those of us who feel at home. Please feel free to bring along an object that you have picked up on a walk near your home – and maybe we will discover new objects of our own on the walk.

GPS Signal Lost

GPS signal Lost


















GPS System Lost
is concerned with observing and recording, over a period of five years, some of the strange interplay between human and natural activity in and around the caves of Craig Y Cilau Nature Reserve near Abergavenny. It is a collage of films and stills, animations and projections in the tunnels of Eglwys Faen, using centuries of graffitti as backdrop.

The film also plays as a personal homage to my father, photographer and one-time pot-holer, on whose last camera the material for this film was gathered.
