“This timeless, mild, beguiling island of a town…” Dylan Thomas
For those of you who may not know, Laugharne was a favoured haunt of Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, and is said to be the basis for his fictional town of Llareggub, the setting for his best loved work, Under Milk Wood. The Laugharne Weekend is an arts festival of literature and music. We’ll be joined by people such as Ray Davies, Josie Long, Wilko Johnson, Joe Dunthorne, Gwenno, Euros Childs, R. Seiliog and so on.
Here’s an illustration of Under Milk Wood by Peter Blake.
Thank you for the C.D. I can’t profess to understand all the tracks, but after three hearings I did manage to hear some words and, some tracks have grown on me. Track One, which I didn’t understand at first, I really like, now. Some others are becoming so familiar I’m quite enjoying them and wiggle in time (whilst sitting, of course).
I had a problem with Track 5, on the first run. I did like it, but it seemed to be running quite a while. It took quite some time to realize it was stuck on that track and was repeating. It also repeated on me! Yes, I later realised I was humming it over + over myself, and just couldn’t get it out of my head. It realised it was my favourite, until the third playing, by which time I had become fascinated by quite a few of the tunes. And, I have it playing now. Fascinating!
Maybe we shall hear it on the radio, soon.
Divided into two sequential parts, the exhibitions focus upon the opposing themes of the harmonious RIFF, and discordant RIFT. Other exhibiting artists include Daniel Eatock, Ruth Claxton, Julie Cockburn and many more - we are honoured and excited to take part in this exhibition!
Until 19th January
New print material by Islet along with an installation made in collaboration with Casper White and Ewan Jones Morris’s video for ‘A Bear On His Own.’
Utilising a range of media that reference, mimic and push both ideas integral to painting, and the processes of painting itself, RIFF/T seeks to highlight trends, facets and approaches particular to the medium, now, and is curated by the Hang Gang.
Installation photos and performance details to follow!
