Moel-y-Gaer, Bodfari

Artist Project

Simon Callery and Stefan Gant will be working as artists in residence at Moel y Gaer during the 2014 and 2015 excavations. The artwork they produce will be informed by the process of the excavation and the landscape in which the site is located.

Simon Callery has worked in collaboration with the Institute of Archaeology in the past on the Segsbury Project, 1996 – 2003. At Moel y Gaer he aims to deepen the investigation into the potential for archaeological excavation sites to stimulate new forms for contemporary painting.

Stefan Gant has strong personal ties to the area and a knowledge of the surrounding landscape having grown up locally. The exploration of contemporary drawing is central to his practice and his engagement with the site intends to generate lateral approaches to drawing whilst developing a deeper understanding of past landscapes.
