15octAll Day16Ice Maiden - Susan AdamsLocation No. 2

Event Details

Sat 15 – Sun 16

Ice Maiden is a reflection on the poem by Lesley Saunders, exploring the fates of two girls separated by millennia, as they merge with the crystalline world of ice. It comes from my current collaboration with writers, exploring narrative through word and image, supported by a Creative Wales Award.

I am interested in exploring the relationship between fantasy and experience and the locations in which these two worlds collide. I am drawn to effigies of the living – uncanny, half-alive objects such as puppets, automata, figures that were made with a specific purpose in mind such as to embody religious beliefs. Being in the presence of something borderline raises questions as to the nature and perception of reality, the nearness of death or absence of life.
