Root & BranchLinda Norris & Wai Kit Lam

02 July - 13 August 2022

Root & Branch is a collaboration between Linda Norris and Hong Kong based artist, Wai Kit Lam. The work was supported by Wales Arts International. Linda and Wai Kit met online during the first Covid19 lockdown in 2020. They decided to develop some work together and settled on the theme of ‘trees’ as a symbol of resilience, networking and growth. This work forms the basis of Root & Branch. 

At a time of great tumult and division globally, the aim of this project was to reach out and physically exchange handmade artworks in order to form a creative network linking artists in Wales and Hong Kong with practitioners in other countries. Although the handmade and haptic is important to Linda and Wai Kit when making connections and in their own interaction with materials, they also welcomed digital artwork.

For Root & Branch Linda and Wai Kit invited over 40 artists from many parts of the world who used trees or wood in some way in their work to contribute an A6 postcard artwork. 

The show is touring internationally and comes to Swansea via Hong Kong and Taiwan.
