As part of our current exhibition, DRIFT by 2nd year BA (Hons) Photographic Art students from the University of South Wales, we will be hosting a performance by artist James Moore of his piece AWAKENING which features in the show.
The exhibition DRIFT showcases artwork produced as a result of a site-specific brief responding to ‘The RIver’, where they have integrated themselves within the local community, each individually responding and creating a diverse range of personal and explorative art whose themes address local heritage, community, and the power of the river.
This performance is a controlled exercise of immersion in water, as a representation of a fear of drowning. The artist will submerge his head into the bowl of water until he is out of air. He will do this until he cannot continue. The performance projects him into the reality of his fear – to overcome it he must attempt to confront it. Viewer discretion is advised as the performance may include scenes some viewers find upsetting.
The exhibition continues until Thursday 5th March 2015, and is open between 10am and 4pm daily.
