CROMEN

Friday 25th September - Monday 30th November | Taliesin

We are able to share with you Marc Rees’ performance as ‘artist in restoration’ when prototyping CROMEN at Taliesin recently, and here it is – CARBON < 19 a movement mantra.

Marc Rees tells us the process behind Cromen.

As we adjust to a new ‘with Covid’ way of life, Taliesin Associate Artist Marc Rees is engaging in a methodical healing and recovery process to remember how to be an artist.

We need to rediscover, rethink, and rebuild but better.

During a week in residence, Rees will be prototyping his new project CROMEN (Welsh for ‘dome’) - a structure/sculpture to counterpoint trauma both personal and collective, to nourish and nurture artistic expression that is vital for individuals and community wellbeing, especially in times of stress and shock.

In later stages, CROMEN will develop to be multi-functioning as a space for sanctuary, shelter, quietude and meditation, a repository and incubator of ideas, conversation, memories, discussion, and performance.

As we begin to think of the process of reopening,  we follow ''artist in restoration'', Marc Rees as he invites you to consider how art and culture can respond to a time like this, and how it can provide a place for contemplation and reflection.
