‘THIS WAY PLEASE’ is an interactive piece that relies on the viewer’s participation. It was conceived in response to an unsuccessful attempt to obtain tickets for the 2012 London Olympic Games and its construction references the utilitarian use of steel and wood at sports venues, in agriculture and public conveniences. A myriad of barriers and borders, some negotiable, others closed and frustrating, its underlying concept is re-charged by recent political events.
Angharad Pearce Jones lives and works in West Wales, specializing in large-scale, multi-media installations and sculpture. Her core technical expertise is in steel fabrication and construction. Many of her works to date are autobiographical and form satirical enquiries into social trends and changing gender roles both at home and in the workplace.
Angharad trained in Brighton and Cardiff and has exhibited regularly in both galleries and festivals over the last 20 years. Some of these include Chapter, Glyn Vivian Art Gallery, g39, Oriel Davies, The National Eisteddfod Open Exhibition and Locws International. Her work has also featured in group shows in Zagreb and Brno, Croatia, and she was principal designer of the Wales Exhibition at Smithstonian Festival, Washington DC, in 2009.
This exhibition runs from 6 February to 3 March 2017
CSAD Exhibitions – ‘Sculpture’
A Series of specially installed art works examining current discourse around free-standing sculpture.
January – April 2017
An ongoing fascination with the key issues of contemporary sculpture, from the readymade to the specific object, to the installation of works, that drives many artists to return to the central issues of three-dimensional form again and again, with fresh and often surprising results. Cardiff School of Art and Design at Cardiff Metropolitan University presents a survey of contemporary sculpture by Wales based artists who are engaged in pushing the boundaries of the medium. Curated by Prof. André Stitt the selected artists explore and expand sculpture’s unique properties in relation to itself, in relation to contemporary art and in relation to the world at large.
