Mapping Cardiff

Dr Heike Roms, a senior lecturer at Aberystwyth commissioned me to draw a floor-sized map of Cardiff for her work at the Experimentica festival at the Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff. The project forms part of her ongoing research into documenting and mapping Performance Art in Wales.

Visitors were invited to share their experiences of performance work in Cardiff over the last 45 years by locating them on a large walkable map of the city – and thereby contributing to a growing archive of Performance Art in Wales.

Professor Mike Pearson of the renowned Brif Gof and Andre Stitt performance artist and part of the Trace collective were amongst those who recorded their experiences on the drawing which will be exhibited in Chapter Arts Centre.

Some images from the event are below.
