Field Trip to Skenfrith


Field trip to Skenfrith, a small village in south-east Wales close to the border between Wales and England.¬†Exploring Skenfrith castle we found the River Monnow running past, a tree inside the castle compound, walls with jagged teeth, bits they’d tried to restore. We met here because it’s the middle point, a meeting point. I have a quote from Roni Horn written down in my book which says ‘when you have only one, you have only one, when you have two you have the space between, plus you’ve got the difference, and the difference is where everything opens up’. We met in that middle space.


Tables, chairs, file cabinets etc…


“And then we pulled the words apart” is an exhibition we will be putting together in Gallery 1 at the Arnolfini from the 2nd till the 5th of July. As part of it we are putting together an allotment/embassy and here is some of the research to give you a behind the scenes look into what we have planned. 005
