ELISABETTA BENASSI : EMPIRE
Jul 13 - Oct 27, 2019
Elisabetta Benassi's†EMPIRE†is an installation of terracotta bricks, hand-crafted in the UK from clay ranging in colour from red to black. The bricks are configured as a site-specific installation – the size, shape and appearance of each installation determined by its relationship to the setting; self-supporting structures assembled without mortar and in an intrinsically stable conformation. The work addresses the crux of the relationship between ancient spaces, archaeological heritage and the contemporary museum.
 
The project EMPIRE by Elisabetta Benassi is curated in MOSTYN, Wales UK by Alfredo Cramerotti, Director. It has been made possible with the support of the Italian Council Directorate-General for Contemporary Art and Architecture and Urban Peripheries (DGAAP) of the Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities under the direction of Federica Galloni. It is promoted by Museo Nazionale Romano in collaboration with the Pontificia Accademia dei Virtuosi al Pantheon, the Italian Institute of Culture in London, and MOSTYN, Wales UK.

JAMIE BARNES : SEA STRUCTURES
Oct 5, 2019 - Jan 26, 2020
Inspired his explorations of coastal paths around Wales, Anglesey, Northumberland, Cumbria and Scotland. A curious set of accompanying sea structures started to appear in Jamie’s work, not only the obvious structures such as lighthouses, but also more unusual, such as orientation beacons, transmitters and glowering power stations.
Drawing underpins Jamie’s practice, transforming his line drawing through the magic of the aquatint etching process. He values etching for the quality of line it can produce, its depth of texture and for the random marks picked up by the process which he often chooses to preserve.
