Manon Awst - Wetland Dreams

Opening on 15 July 2023

This exhibition by Manon Awst combines sculptures, installations and creative research on the peat fens of Anglesey and Traeth Mawr, the former tidal estuary that lies before Plas Brondanw.

Manon is an artist from Anglesey who lives in Caernarfon and makes artworks woven with ecological and geological narratives. She explores our relationship with landscapes over time and the ways in which materials stick to and transform locations and communities. She studied Architecture at Cambridge University and is working on her PhD at Bangor. Earlier this year she was granted a Henry Moore Foundation Artist Award.

This is a milestone in her period of research and production as part of ‘Sticky Sculptures’, a project supported by Arts Council Wales, Natural Resources Wales, and the BioComposites Centre at Bangor University.

The exhibition continues until the 16th September and she will hold an artist talk with Sarah Pogoda on the 19th August.
