My piece "Joey" hanging inside the 'Adain Avion' Plane
I was thrilled to be a part of Wendy Couling's 'Trails of Thread' exhibition last Monday night, housed inside the DC plane that was the centrepiece of the Adain Avion project. The exhibition only lasted two hours and I was on hand to help with the install and take down, alongside our other studio-mates Gerallt and Toni, the exhibition then moved onto Mostyn where it will hang for two weeks.
The ‘Trails of Thread’ installation consists of artwork created during a series of Workshop sessions. Working with the Textile-based group ‘Serentex’, including members of the Embroiderers Guild, and also a series of Masterclass sessions with members of the community. Using Wendy's own work on perspex and aluminium as a starting point, the artwork is based on the participant’s collection of memories of Llandudno, and thus builds a connection between the fuselage of Adain Avion and the local landscape.
