An exhibition and performance event by the Standpoint Futures 2015 residency artist representing Wales.

About

(Tom was asked to send some thoughts about his time at Standpoint and the event on 10th June. This is his response, unedited.)

 

It is always about a line between fact and fiction. What is the truth? You can't handle the truth! Oh don't start that again…

It's looking at the idea of representing Wales. Flattered. 

Realising that getting to any milestone is about an accumulation of help and support, about collaborating it's not just about you. F*ck the idea of genius. That's what Cerbyd was about. Showing the similarities between people, not dividing them. Against the idea of a messiah. Against the idea of eulogising artists and turning them into Jesus. Against the idea of David Bowie. David Bowie was great because of the amazing people he worked with that complemented him.

So I'm working with past collaborators on some of the pieces. The mentoring for Standpoint and Creative Wales is an accumulation of that perhaps.

 

Inspired by Terry Wogan, Goddard will interview himself. He will also present re-presentations by collaborators of selected past works.
