ONGOING AND REPEATED EVENTS
Multi-disciplinary Art Exhibition
Sunday 13th – April 28th – Plas Bodfa, Llangoed – Anglesey
65 projects from 61 creatives fill the entirety of Plas Bodfa, a currently empty manor house on the Isle of Anglesey in Wales. This remarkably multi-disciplinary group art exhibition explores the idea of ‘sui generis’, a Latin phrase meaning “of its (his, her, their) own kind; in a class by itself; unique”. It has been adopted by the legal profession for unusual buildings, properties that fall outside normal designation.
What are the possibilities of a house? With performance and painting, collage and ceramics, skateboarding and singing, poetry and polyrhythmic drumming, fairytales and photography, games and gramophones, sculpture and storytelling, re-enactments and a retroscope, this exhibition is a one-time opportunity to fill the currently vacant 36 room / 1,000 sqm space with creative acts, before complete renovation begins.
Alan Whitfield, Andy Hodges, Anna Mitchell, Anne Weshinskey, Arni Gudmundsson, Belit Sağ, Cathy Wroble, Christopher Bond, Clare Brumby, David Garner, Debbie Budenberg, Fiona Davies, Genesis Dove, Georgia Colman, Harri Carmichael, Heather AdHudson, Helen Birnboum, Helen Danson, Helmet, Ioan Griffith, Jan Hale, Jane Ross, Jayne Lawless, Jennie Halloway, Jonathan Lewis, Jonathan Smith, Josie Jenkins, Justine Montford, Karen Ankers, Ken Davies, Lara Usherwood, Lee Duggan, Lin Cummins, Marirose Pritchard, Martin Daws, Mel Roberts, Michael Prince, Mishelle Kit, Nellie Mann, Ness Owen, Nicola Carter, Ol Guse, Pat Arnao, Peter Appleton, Peter Hughes, Philip Cassidy, Remy Dean, Rhona Bowey, Rhys Trimble, Sarah Bowker-Jones, Secil Yayali, Stephen Green, Sterly and Snell, Tammy Woodrow, Thomas Witherick, Trish Bermingham, Ülgen Semerci, Veronica Calarco, Wanda Garner, Wendy Dawson
Sui Generis is a project of Julie Upmeyer, an artist and initiator.
The exhibition is part of the Anglesey Art Week’s – Open Studios and Galleries 2019.
