Artes Mundi 7

Visited Artes Mundi 7 on its penultimate day. Felt inspired and immersed.

The below two installations stood out:

Bedwyr Williams: Tyrrau Mawr (2016)

In reality it would be horrific having a large city at Cadair Idris. But lying on beanbags infront of the painting, listening to the artist talk, I felt strangely soporific.

John Akomfrah: Auto Da Fe (2016)

Space, colour and always returning to the sea in John Akomfrah’s film gives a sense of transience, drifting and displacement. An absorbing  winning installation.
