EXHIBITION: Beachcombing

Date: Monday 7 January 2019 to Thursday 21 February 2019

Location: Oriel, Senedd

Description: I think that sometimes you only really discover a place when you are ready to take it in. When I visited the foreshore again in 2015, I was amazed at the wealth of fascinating detritus that lingered around the beach. My first 'light bulb' moment was finding a brick imprinted with the name 'Burn-Axe'. Then another, 'Thistle'. And then, 'Little Mill', 'Abersychan', and 'Newport Star'. Suddenly, the beach had become full of traces of places, and people; a jumbled three-dimensional map of history and industry, intimate in its detail.

Open to the public: Yes
