Materials from the Garden

tactileBOSCH, Capitol Centre, Queen Street, Cardiff, CF10 2HQ
10 – 30 Sept Wednesday to Saturday afternoons, 1-4pm.

In the midst of environmental, political and public health emergencies, Penny Hallas and Allen Fisher look to the garden, the allotment and the wider landscape for ways of thinking about their own place and the place of others in a world leaning towards disaster. Discomfort and anxiety are a part of it, but so are glimpses of paradise. Through drawing, installation, projection and performance they bring messages from the Garden to the commercial urban centre of Cardiff.

10 Sept 2-5pm – see the show and chat with Penny. 6-8pm – Opening event
25 Sept 2-5pm see the show and chat with Penny. 7-8pm -performance with poetry, projection, music: Allen Fisher, Lyndon Davies and Penny Hallas. Booking required for performance: DM @tactileBOSCH.

Aftermath series1-4

Whilst 4 drawings made it out of the country to be shown at the Kohtuus–Yhteys–Tasa-arvo exhibition,
Covid 19 and lockdown prevented planned artist visits and exchanges taking place. Thanks to Arts Council
Wales Stabilisation Fund, I was able to extend the opportunity by making companion pieces to the 4 Aftermath
drawings and connecting with Marja Bonada, (artist and co-curator of the exhibition). Creative digital
collaboration, exploration of the exhibition themes and sharing of mutual responses informed our respective artworks and practices.

For Marja’s work see  @marjabonada and read our blog for more details.
