g 39

Forthcoming Artist Talk
Dan Rees: Merthyr Rising

Thurs 29 March 2012 6.30pm g39 Oxford Street Cardiff CF24 3DT

Free admission, however booking is recommended. To book a place email sean@g39.org

In the first talk at g39’s new venue Dan Rees will be talking about his new body of work inspired by the events and history of the town of Merthyr Tydfil. The video work, Merthyr Rising sees the artist following a trail to the edge of town towards the supermarket megastore Asda, which reportedly sold 78,000 pairs of white socks in one year, to a population of less than 55,000. The exhibition’s sculptural installation is a response to this style phenomenon which lead the artist to speculate on the rise of a new subcultural movement in this ex-mining community, deep in the Welsh Valleys.

Berlin based Rees is at the forefront of a new generation of British artists who share a specific understanding of the underlying aesthetics of Conceptual Art. The work displays an interest in linking the personal and anecdotal to a wider art historical context. Often employing a light-hearted and humorous approach, Rees incorporates the everyday and ephemeral subject matter into his work. Forthcoming and recent solo exhibitions include; National Museum of Wales, Cardiff; Baronian Francey, Brussels and ‘Merthyr Rising’, New Galerie, Paris (all 2012); ‘French Cricket’, Tanya Leighton Gallery, Berlin; ‘Shakin’ Peg Rails’, Wallspace New York (both 2010). Recent Group Exhibitions include; ‘Painting Show’, Eastside projects, Birmingham; ‘Outrageous Fortune, Focal Point gallery, Essex and ‘Keep Floors and Passageways Clear’, White Columns New York (all 2011).

Sascha Dillmann mesmerising end of year project.

Students’ Union, University of Glamorgan SU.

Installation Video Art

Sascha Dillmann is an German artist who started his art course at University of Glamorgan last September.

He has created two peices for his end of year projects. Firstly a piece with three video screens each showing Sascha taping his ears, eyes and mouth. This is shown along with the sound the tape makes which makes for intense viewing!

Hear NO……..!?!
See NO……..!?!
Speak NO……..!?!

Video room installation
3 x screen, 3 x stereo & 3 Plinths

Sascha’s interpretation of the saying:
Hear no evil, See no evil, Speak no evil

He worked on the issue of ignorance in this p[piece, with the dots in the title standing for the masking tape in the videos and the masking tape represents peoples ignorance.

         



Contagious

Video Installation

4 x Video, 1 screen, headphones, small room.

Yawning! Everybody yawns. WHY? Sometimes we yawn with each other. WHY?

A lot f people say: Yawning is contagious but, the scientists are not sure why we yawn and why we yawn with each other. Do we need the sound and the face motion to infect us with yawning?

The installation is a test situation

1. Without face motion
2. Without sound (Yawn)
3. With sound and covered motion
4. The classic yawn
