As a way of introduction Chris Bird-Jones and I would like to invite you to the film screening of:
Trywydd . Voyage - Bird-Jones & Heald (2015)
10 February 2016, 1.30pm, Oriel Sycharth Gallery, Glyndwr University, Wrexham
Join us in the Oriel Sycharth Gallery for a special screening of Trywydd . Voyage. The event will be introduced by Dr Susan Liggett, Head of Media Arts and Design Research Centre at Glyndwr University and artists Chris Bird-Jones and Karen Heald, collectively known as Bird-Jones & Heald will talk about their project after the screening.'
Bird-Jones & Heald filmed material inspired by collectively viewing significant architectural glass sites, artists' studios and museums throughout France. The film captured visual details, including figures silhouetted against illuminated backdrops, hand gestures, composite interiors, changing landscapes and emerging patterns.
Part of this body of research focused on the Welsh artists taking part: Amber Hiscott, Catrin Jones, Chris Bird-Jones and myself. Trywydd . Voyage explores the intimacy, quality, nuances, details, sensitivity and beauty of the Welsh centric aspect of this journey.
