Carwyn Evans: UDO

4 October - 13 December 2014

UDO is a substantial new body of work by Carwyn Evans. Translating from Welsh as ‘howl’, udo is an animal cry, a verb, an action of direct expression.
Carwyn’s sculptural work results from the overlaying of two contrasting cultures – that of agriculture and haute-couture. His work is concerned with the inevitability that when we consume we produce, expressed by the logical relationship between eau-de-toilette and a turd. The artist’s daily experience informs this blurring of experiences, resulting in a contrasting landscape of earth, smell, perfume, decadence, dread, desire and disgust.

Artists as Learners is a professional development opportunity for artists wanting to develop knowledge and skills of working with hard to reach young people. Artists will be mentored by an experienced lead artist and the programme will include a day's training led by Unitas.
Applications are sought from early career or emerging visual artists and makers with socially engaged practices.

Also coming up: Inga Burrows - Offset

Alongside Carwyn Evans, Inga Burrows will be presented in Unit#1. Following a period as the first artist in residence at the production studios of the long-running Welsh soap opera Pobol Y Cwm, Inga Burrows has been working with the characters (in character, not as actors) to collectively produce work. A series of activities between the artist and the actors have tried to establish a shared vocabulary to engage with contemporary work.

Previously Inga’s art practice has investigated the role of the imagination within mundane reality. In this work, the slippages between the real working environment of the actors, the imagined but equally real ‘set’ of the characters place her constantly on the blurred line between the two. Off-script but still in character, who are these people?
