Adain Avion incorporates a transformed aeroplane created from the body of a DC-9 airplane, discovered and transformed by Spanish sculptor and designer Eduardo Cajal. Welsh artist Marc Rees will celebrate its twentieth anniversary by bringing Avion to Wales and migrating it across the nation as mobile art space, social sculpture and travelling time capsule.
Adain Avion, is Wales’ major contribution to the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad, the largest cultural celebration in the history of the modern Olympic and Paralympic Movements
Adain Avion will kick start London Festival 2012 events in Wales.
Come and welcome its arrival and witness an extraordinary physical feat – the silver fuselage being pulled for the very first time!
Members of Swansea's local sporting fraternity will haul the Adain Avion fuselage ceremoniously to its nesting site, between the National Waterfront Museum and the Leisure Centre, where it will begin a week's creative gestation.
This colossal collective effort will be supported by the premier of the Adain Avion Arrival Anthem, commissioned by John Hardy and played by students from The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, with an additional musical welcome by the local Scouts, and a choreographic salute from the AAA troupe, Adain Avion’s very own glamorous retro-clad stewardesses.
