Artist of the year exhibition
15th Jan, 7pm @Cardiff Fashion Quarters
I will also be presenting a glimpse of my Rats project; Rose Against The System. This is an animation I have been working on over the last year. The rats of Butetown have got wise and decide to fight back. I am planning on showing how far I have gotten by trying out a performing version for the first installment to see if it could work as a Theater peace as well as an animation.
I have involved local musicians and spoken word talents such as Wibidy and Weller from Degaba. Music score by Dafydd Ieaun, from ‘Catatonia’ and ‘Super Furry Animals’ performing with his new band ‘The Earth’ introducing a new talent I discovered whilst in Edinburgh Fringe, Sam Porter. Guest Voice by Rhys Ifans.

I would love it if I could get some Team members involved? I am looking for volunteers who would like to take part in the performance and people with experience in lighting and sound in particular. If there is anybody that knows some one or performs with puppets, there is a big part for such an expert. Practice session start in the New Year.
I would just like to let you all no I have thoroughly enjoyed my year as the first Artist in residence at NTW. I feel privileged to have been involved in NTW’s projects and I know the experience has helped me and my process as a visual artist and film maker. So if anybody would like me to get involved in any of their up and coming projects I will be available next year.
