Hannah Quinlan and Rosie Hastings: In My Room

Hannah Quinlan and Rosie Hastings’ first solo institutional exhibition, In My Room, develops the artists’ inquiry into the politics, histories and aesthetics of queer spaces and culture. This inquiry builds on their travels across the UK whilst making ‘UK Gay Bar Directory (UKGBD)’ 2016, a moving image archive of gay bars in the UK made in response to the systematic closure of LGBTQA+ dedicated special spaces during this period. For Quinlan and Hastings, it became apparent through this research that the gay scene caters predominantly to white men.

Natalia Dias: Between Realms

Magwyd Natalia Dias ym Mhortiwgal lle’r oedd y tu mewn i eglwysi yn ymdebygu i oriel gelf. Mae’r ffurfiau, y lliwiau, yr emosiynau a’r symboliaeth wastad wedi bod yn ddylanwad sylfaenol. Fel delweddau cyn-Raffaelaidd a llawer o fytholeg Geltaidd a Groegaidd, mae cerfluniau clasurol Natalia yn canolbwyntio ar y ffigwr benywaidd ynghyd â natur. Mae hi’n edrych ar y fenyw fel rhyfelwr, ffigwr sy’n cyfleu pŵer a hyder, sy’n addasu i amgylchedd sydd bob amser mewn cyflwr o lanw a thrai, ac yn trawsnewid rhwng dynoliaeth, planhigion a bwystfilod.
