Unus Multorum - the Possibilities of a House

4th to 19th April, 2020
11:00 – 17:00 every day

Creatives and makers, inventors and artists will once again descend upon Plas Bodfa, an empty manor house on the Isle of Anglesey in Wales. In our second, house-wide, radically multi-disciplinary exhibition you can explore 69 different creative projects and installations and savour 30+ pop-up performances. 

Wander through more than 35 rooms filled with works from musicians and metal detectors, painters and printmakers, spinners and sculptors, photographers and printmakers, carvers, poets, historians and explorers.

Sui Generis - the Possibilities of a House

66 projects from 62 creatives fill the entirety of Plas Bodfa, a currently empty manor house in Llangoed on the Isle of Anglesey. This remarkably multi-disciplinary group art exhibition explores the idea of ‘sui generis’, a Latin phrase meaning "of its (his, her, their) own kind; in a class by itself; unique”. It has been adopted by the legal profession for unusual buildings, properties that fall outside normal designation.
