An Automaton

An Automaton

Shani Rhys James

The celebrated artist Welsh artist SRJ will place one of her Automaton works within the dramatic setting of the shuttered concrete tube in MOSTYN. The tapping mechanical action of the automaton will resonate within the space and no doubt with the works currently on display as part of the Women Art Society II exhibition, which includes two of Shani’s enormous and vibrant paintings. At the festival launch, the Spanish dance duo Guillermo Weickert and Maria Cabeza de Vaca will created an improvised dance response which will explore the connections between the stark architecture and the sharp, haunting repetitive actions of the solitary automaton.
