Field Trip to Skenfrith

Uncategorized

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.

Walking on and between the boarders we passed around a camera, each taking it in turns to document. We tore a flag apart and waved it in the wind. IMG_4484IMG_4485IMG_4489IMG_4469IMG_4467
