Tact Series: Orange

Rhod, Carmarthenshire, Wales

June 2012

I produced four temporary site-responsive works for Rhod. Using polyurethane hazard tape, latex rubber and industrial packaging materials, objects were wrapped and disused spaces filled around Melin Glonc Mill.

Rhôd is a unique open-air contemporary art event held annually in Drefelin, Carmarthenshire, Wales. Since 2009, the owners of Melin Glonc Mill, Roger Lougher and Mari Beynon Owen, have arranged for artists to show their installation art in and around the old corn mill. The underlying theme of the event has been to open a dialogue between artists who work in urban and rural environments. Each year the show has been curated by artists who have previously been exhibitors. This year the curator was Kathryn Campbell Dodd.
