Jo Marsh with Antonia Dewhurst
WanderBox is a custom-built, portable contemporary art space presented by artist Jo Marsh, offering residencies to both established and emerging visual artists in a wide variety of locations and settings. The project hosts exhibitions of contemporary visual art, and serves as a base for performance and participatory practice.
For LLAWN03 the WanderBox residency will be taken up by local artist Antonia Dewhurst with ‘Lost Weekend’.
In 2014 a young photography student found an undeveloped film in a secondhand camera. Processing revealed 8 poignant photos of a 1970s family holiday in Llandudno and Llanfairfechan.
A press and online appeal failed to identify the family.
Who are they? Why wasn’t the film developed? Step into the mystery and see what Antonia has discovered.
Jo Marsh is an artist based in North East Wales, She interested in the overlap between sculpture and performance, in the relationship between physical objects and the performative processes that they can initiate. Her practice involves the creation of sculpture which, rather than being a finished outcome, represents a starting point for potentially endless expansion and performative situations.
Antonia Dewhurst is a visual artist living and working in North Wales. Her work explores our complex relationship with what we call home.
She is currently working with young people on an employment scheme at the community group Caia Park Partnership in Wrexham, to develop transferrable practical skills through building a full size shepherd’s hut. This project forms part of Oriel Wrecsam’s off-site programme, supported by Arts Council Wales; the hut will eventually be moved into Wrexham town centre as a space for Oriel Wrecsam projects and exhibitions.
