Local Artists Open their Studios for the Finale of their Residency
In April this year Ruth Jên Evans and Joanna Bond won the prestigious Studio Award at Aberystwyth Arts Centre. Over the last 8 months they have been busy developing their projects in the silver Heatherwick buildings on the grounds of the Arts Centre. On Wednesday 7th December they will open their studio doors and invite members of the public to come and see their work.
Ruth Jên Evans has been exploring the language of sheep farming. Beginning with the patterns made in sheep’s ears as a method of counting the flock, she looks at how this specific language evolves through time. By recording the sounds and symbols used by farmers, her work preserves a vital part of Welsh culture that is gradually being lost.
Joanna Bond has focused on the connections between humans and nature. Her work is based around the notion of the ‘consciousness’ of plants and how our instincts towards our own health can be symbolised by a ribbon that binds us all together. By incorporating ceramics and drawings with performance, her work reminds us of the beauty and fragility of our bodies.
The doors to studios 1&3 will be open to all on Wednesday 7th December between 3 and 7pm. Free, all welcome.
