Power in the Land / Pŵer yn y Tir
18 February- 17 March 2017
The artist group X-10 present the fruits of two years working together around the closure and decommissioning of Wylfa on Anglesey, the last nuclear power station in Wales. The final shutdown in December 2015, marked the end of an era for the local community and brings to the fore the question mark over the next generation of nuclear power.
Showing a range of compelling responses through video, photography, sound, sculpture, installation and alternative photographic processes, the artists in X-10 try and come to terms with the conundrums of nuclear power, our future energy requirements and environmental concerns. Each artist has made an individual response to the physical and energetic presence of the power station, the future legacy for the Anglesey site and to the complex associations of nuclear power.
Merging art, science and technology the show presents new questions and thoughts to the nuclear debate.
Participating artists – Ant Dickinson, Bridget Kennedy, Jessica Lloyd-Jones, Chris Oakley, Teresa Paiva, Tim Skinner, Robin Tarbet, Alana Tyson, Annie Grove-White, Helen Grove-White.
