Marc Rees 'artist in restoration'
CARBON < 19 a movement mantra
Marc Rees tells us the process behind Cromen
As we begin the process of reopening, Marc Rees invites you to consider how art and culture can respond to a situation like the present one, and how it can provide a place for thought and reflection.
As we adjust to a new way of life 'with Covid', Taliesin Associate Artist Marc Rees undertakes an organized process of healing and recovery to remember how to be an artist.
We need to rediscover, rethink and rebuild, but better.
During a residential week, Rees created a prototype of his new project, CROMEN, a structure / sculpture to provide a counterpoint to personal and community trauma, to foster and nurture artistic expression essential to the well-being of individuals and the community, especially in times of stress and shock.
Later in the process, CROMEN will develop into a multi-purpose space, offering shelter, tranquility and space for reflection, a store and incubator of ideas, conversations, memories, discussion and performance.
