What's On Cardigan Bay 2017

November 2017

Jonathan Anderson Pylon Totems

Jonathan Anderson pylon totems Saturday 7th October 2017 - Sunday 26th November Location: Oriel Mwldan

Anderson’s work aligns metaphysical ideas with industrial materials: coal, bitumen, sand and soil are regularly used. Often sculptural, his works are simultaneously malignant and beautiful. Pylon Totems, cloaked in rags and bitumen, make pan-cultural references that allude to Crucifixes, Asian Buddhist statues, South American and African voodoo dolls. Yet the inspiration came from the many hundreds of electricity pylons that criss-cross the landscape of Wales. The work functions as a meditative tool to contemplate contemporary issues of ecology, religion and politics. There will be an opening event with a talk from the artist on Friday 6 October at 6pm

St Dogmael's Firework Display

Saturday 4th November 2017 Location: Alexandra Gardens

Come and enjoy food and drink from local stall and the Teifi Netpool Inn.

Roots – National Dance Company Wales Thursday 16th November 2017 Location: Mwldan

Wales’ National dance company lead you through an evening of discovery with a selection of exciting contemporary works performed by some of the world’s best dancers. Full of wit, character and stunning movement, the night will also include discussion and anecdotes from our artists. The company’s Artistic Director, Caroline Finn, presents Beside Himself about one man split into two halves. His ego; and his alter ego, and Animatorium where a troupe of characters are brought to life and controlled by their charming yet sinister Master - but for how long? Lee Johnston’s They Seek to Find the Happiness They Seem is a heart-wrenching exploration of disconnection within a relationship. Omertà by Matteo Marfoglia is a moving and powerful piece about the role of women in Italian Mafia society and their route to freedom. more info

Orbit Exhibition by Simon Fenoulhet

Simon Fenoulhet Orbit Exhibition Saturday 2nd December 2017 - Sunday 14th January Location: Oriel Mwldan

n Simon Fenoulhet’s work, light is often the medium and sometimes the subject but always the main consideration. Often using ready made objects and materials, Fenoulhet’s art is a reworking of the everyday, finding unexpected visual properties in objects. We have grown accustomed to high levels of illumination in our homes and places of work but this work demonstrates the artist’s interest in the ability of light to reveal unusual things about the world. There will be an opening event with a talk from the artist on Saturday 2 December at 4pm.
