14 January - 21 March 2020

Gweni Llwyd’s practice explores how physical and digital materials may be embedded with social, sensory and cultural meanings, and how this may be mediated through digital video. With a focus on the ordinary, the sensory and the absurd, Gweni draws from online and offline material encounters. Prompted by memories of touch and texture, she navigates hyperlink journeys, collecting video clips, sounds and GIFs from open online archives to use in conjunction with her own video footage, photographs and audio. Approaching video making as collage, she attempts to classify and curate seemingly unconnected digital artefacts, resulting in bizarre, abstracted or rhythmic narratives. 

Gweni Llwyd graduated from Cardiff School of Art and Design in 2017. She has exhibited artwork across Europe and online. recent exhibitions include V&A Late: Art Schools, Victoria and Albert Museum, London (2019), Gripping Wrists, LUX Scotland & Tendency Towards, Aberdeen (2018), and Sightseers, g39, Cardiff (2018). In 2018 she was the recipient of the Arts Council of Wales’s Brian Ross Memorial Award and the National Eisteddfod of Wales’s Young Artist Scholarship.
