Maesglas Underpass - ARTIST COMMISSION
This is a Living Levels and Tin Shed Theatre Co. co-commission to offer an artist and/or group and opportunity to write a project brief and apply for up to £7,500 of funding to create a unique piece of art that can enhance an urban underpass.
This form is to gauge interest from any and all artists interested, and will be followed by an interview stage in the new year when you'll get to pitch your idea more clearly.
We’re looking for a company and/or artist to create an interpretive Artwork within the Maesglas Underpass. It’s about re-imagining space and creating a unique work of art that enhances peoples experience of travelling through.
Here, there is the opportunity to create an interpretive Artwork at the Maesglas Underpass; a significant structure on the cycle route between Tredegar House, the heavily urbanised Duffryn Estate, and the Wetlands Centre. We feel this passage way has the potential to become a canvas that can tell a story of the Gwent Levels to local people and visitors.
It would be particularly effective if it introduced walkers/cyclists to the bird and animal life they could encounter as they approach the Wetlands. The work has the potential to be digital, visual, sculptural, notional, interactive, site specific and playful.
We want to use this commission to create an opportunity to bridge the gap between the residential hinterland and the environmental oasis of the Wetlands.
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: 1st FEB 2020
