Join us for the exhibition launch of 'Vulgar Earth’ from 6pm – 8pm on Friday 13th April in the Andrew Lamont Gallery at Theatr Brcyheiniog.
The launch will begin at 6.00pm outside the theatre with a live performance from Jo Bushell, a performance artist, who will open the exhibition with a participative, site-specific performance piece, drawing on the mythology and landscape of the Brecon Beacons, to explore the influence of nature/culture dualism on our understanding of what is valuable...and ultimately, what can therefore be exploited.
Following the short performance outside we will regroup to the gallery for wine and nibbles and to view the rest of the exhibition!
This exhibition stems from concern that the effects of humankind, driven by profit, are felt everywhere from the city to the landscape of the Beacons. Vulgar Earth, an artists’ collective, uses painting, sculpture, installation, film, performance and writing, with a passion and intensity, to reawaken realisations and encourage discussion of the direction humanity has taken.
Other artists participating in the exhibition are Jackie Yeomans, Simon Meiklejohn, Glenn Morris, Maisie Noble, Kim Colebrook, Rob McCarthy, Peter Horrocks, David England, Zoe Young, Jim Carter, Verity Howard Ceramics, Tina Walton and Glyn Bee, Glynn Brimacombe.
