Walk & Talk with Cefyn BurgessTu ôl i’r blwch | Behind the box

20 July - 20 July 2024

Walk & Talk: 2pm, Saturday 20th July 2024

Mission Gallery warmly invites you to the exhibition opening of Tu ôl i’r blwch | Behind the box, with a Walk & Talk by textile artist Cefyn Burgess. 

Tu ôl i’r blwch / Behind the box is based on Cefyn’s first research visit to North East India, namely the Khasi, Jainita Hills and Mizoram. A journey to get to know the people behind the collection boxes he remembers from his childhood Sunday School.

These collection boxes, the Khasi and Jaintia hills are names that have ingrained themselves in Cefyn’s memory. Through this ongoing project, Cefyn explores the relationship and shared history established over 150 years between Wales and the varied traditions, language and culture of Khasi, Jainita hills of Megahalaya.

Part of an ongoing cultural research project in North East India, supported by Wales Arts International.
