“We live with the Land/Cyd-fyw â’r Tir” 2021-22

‘We Live with the Land’ and ‘The Land as Other’ is a multi-disciplinary art exploration founded by Dr Veronica Calarco, “responding to the history/story of the land, language and land, a sense of place, the environmental and re-wilding movements and the positioning of land by outsiders as other – a visual / playground commodity (tourism) in Wales”. The project is funded by a Joy Welch Research Grant and supported by Stiwdio Maelor. A selected group of artists met to exchange ideas and gather inspiration for work over several months; residential sessions were held at Stiwdio Maelor, Corris and at Plas Bodfa, Ynys Môn. The resulting work was shown in an exhibition curated by Dr. Calarco at the School of Art, Aberystwyth in July and August 2022.
