Carwyn Evans: UDO

4 October - 13 December 2014

UDO is a substantial new body of work by Carwyn Evans. Translating from Welsh as ‘howl’, udo is an animal cry, a verb, an action of direct expression.
Carwyn’s sculptural work results from the overlaying of two contrasting cultures – that of agriculture and haute-couture. His work is concerned with the inevitability that when we consume we produce, expressed by the logical relationship between eau-de-toilette and a turd. The artist’s daily experience informs this blurring of experiences, resulting in a contrasting landscape of earth, smell, perfume, decadence, dread, desire and disgust.

Also at g39: Inga Burrows - Offset

Following a period as the first artist in residence at the production studios of the long-running Welsh soap opera Pobol Y Cwm, Inga Burrows has been working with the characters (in character, not as actors) to collectively produce work. A series of activities between the artist and the actors have tried to establish a shared vocabulary to engage with contemporary work.

Friday 24 October 6.30pm - Off Set performance

When Inga took up an artist residency in the fictional town of Cwmderi back in January 2014, she approached the community with her eyes wide open to the material form of art work the people of the town might wish to create, in the name of contemporary art. Through a series of practical and dialogical sessions in the studio above the Deri pub, the idea of choreographing a dance work took shape.

The Green Room will be the setting for a bilingual performance in two parts: dialogues about process between actors, recordings and a movement work.
