The Mari Lwyd or ‘grey mare’, a Welsh midwinter tradition, has been a key influence in the work of artist Clive Hicks-Jenkins. Dark Movements is a multi media presentation of works inspired by the story. This exhibition will include a number of works from the original series of large scale drawings which the artist made following his father‘s death; works articulating a private grief and fear as well as exploring deep rooted cultural beliefs. Exhibited alongside these will be new paintings and animated film using the artist’s puppetry figures, as well as examples of the ‘shadow puppet’ models which Clive uses in his painting practice. Puppets and models from the 2013 performance of the chamber work inspired by the artist's Mari Lwyd series, ‘The Mare’s Tale’ (composer Mark Bowden and librettist Damian Walford Davies) will also be on show.
