Resident Echoes: Collective Voices Residency: 24 – 26 November 2022
How do our neighbouring communities feel about the area they live in? What are the places that local residents feel connected to around Llandudno? How can Mostyn create a space where communities can feel at home in the gallery?
In response to these questions, Mostyn presents Resident Echoes, a new collaborative project with Sheffield based social architecture practice Studio Polpo and Conwy based sound artists Graham Hembrough and Carl Richardson.
Over three days the artists will take up residence in locations across Llandudno and within the gallery to meet with communities and the wider public. Through these recorded gatherings, the artists will produce new sound works which will present a portrait of the town through the collective voices in these public spaces.
These new works will be presented in the Mostyn Project Space in 2023, both online and within the newly transformed Mostyn Project Space, a place where our communities and the wider public can come together and encounter our programmes in alternative and new ways.
Saturday, 26 November 2022 – Mostyn Project Space: Open Session
Join Studio Polpo, Carl Richardson and Graham Hembrough in the Project Space for a day of tours, activities and a collaborative recording session. The experience in Mostyn is not just the international contemporary art we present in the galleries. The public use our spaces for different reasons and in various ways. You may be a regular customer in the Oriel Cafe or the Gallery Siop, you might only use the free facilities when going about your daily errands.
This event is open to everyone and you don’t have to be an art expert to take part. The recorded session aims to reflect this, and pose the question to the public, how can the Project Space help people feel more at home in the gallery.
Drop-in anytime between 12pm-4pm, Saturday the 26 of November.
