People who have saved this event:


Mission Gallery has offered its gallery space to artist Aled Simons for a two week exhibition to go beyond the boundaries of his practice and create a site specific installation.


Centering around a collective perception and experience of past, present and future ‘The Shipwreck' is a collection of found discarded household doors. These universally recognizable features create corridors and pathways, the evidence of their previous lives form a landscape of universal space, history and memories. The process focuses on the notion of a constant search. Reclaiming and re-forming. Surrounding ones self with collections and fragments of the past to create a new, universal whole. Illuminating forgotten dreams, reuniting old friends and foretelling the apocalypse.
