Description

Cynefin - of this place
Artists and writers at Llwyn Celyn

Cynefin marks the opening of Llwyn Celyn, a medieval hall house in the Llanthony Valley, which has over the last few years undergone painstaking restoration by the Landmark Trust. During the work in progress artists and writers in residence developed and created a series of new works that explored the site, the people, its sense of place and history and the understanding that unravelled during the course of the project.

Join us at Llwyn Celyn on Friday 5th and Saturday 6th October from 6pm to 8pm to experience this unique site through the work of our artists-in-residence.

Artist Stefhan Caddick and composer Jobina Tinnemans have developed a performance piece ‘as a Raven knows of singing to mark the end of restoration and the start of a new chapter in the building’s long history. Using temporary sound sculptures, DIY instruments and voice they will be using the hills and valleys around Llwyn Celyn as a vast, distributed instrument.

During her two year residency, writer clare e. potter has recorded sounds to capture the process of Llwyn Celyn's renovation. She has created soundscapes and written poems in response to the audio pieces. During the evening, she will present A Gathering of Sounds. As you move from room to room, perhaps you too will hear the house reveal something of itself.

Visual artists Toril Brancher and Catherine Baker have created new work for the public spaces on site, which will be presented for the first time. Jamie Lake will present his work with poet Fiona Hamilton.

As this event finishes after dark, please bring torches and wear sturdy footwear to navigate back to the parking area.

A video recording of the event will taken.
