Ar y Ffram: Ffiws

Hannah Walters & Lucy Smith

Hydref 2023 – Ionawr 2024

Ffiws is a collaboration between ceramicist Hannah Walters and writer Lucy Smith. Over the last 7 months, they’ve been exploring the links between fungi and queer identities, combining their practices, and playing with forms, words, textures, and meanings. They are interested in how queer ideas connect with the movement and forms of mycelium, spores, and bursting fruiting bodies – both shifting, transformative and boundary-defying.

Safle Celf: Hollti a rhwymo / Cleave

Lesley James

21/10/23 - 25/11/23

Lesley James lives and works in North Wales. She is interested in surface traces, form, and in the physical and invisible barriers we create.
I find the quarry landscape fascinating, a visible result of both destruction and creation. The work explores the hand of the artist following the hands of the slate quarry workers, creating double sided rubbings of rock faces, walls, roofs and tools used in the slate industry.’

Breathing Space
Alec Shepley

Air is largely invisible and yet integral to our existence. It moves freely across borders and through bodies, resisting our attempts to define and contain it. The coronavirus pandemic highlighted air is a shared, intimate space that renders us vulnerable to infection. The air we breathe is a common space and the locus for my curiosity and play in this residency, as it relates to all things now and in the future, societal inequality, and shared responsibility. The aim of my pragmatic art projects is to connect with a community to bring together multiple layers of experience and this manifests itself in my work – words, picture, objects, films, sound etc. Through this ‘spatial information’ I aim to provide conversation pieces. I invite you to come in, take a seat and relax. Even have a lie down. And listen to the sound of your own breath. Enjoy.
