Rhod Installation Artists at Venice

A week of interventions

A group of installation artists who have shown at the annual installation art show, Rhôd, in West Wales, will take over the top floor of Pane Vino e San Daniele Restaurant in Dorsoduro from Monday, May 30 to Saturday, June 4 for a week of interventions.

The participating artists are : Michael Cousin, Kathryn Campbell Dodd, Kim Fielding, Good Cop, Bad Cop; Richard Higlett, Penny Jones, Ann Jordan, Mike Murray, Jason Pinder, David Shepherd, Elizabeth Waterhouse,Jacob Whittaker.

Curator Roger Lougher, one of the creative directors at Rhôd, sees the Venice show as a natural extension of the annual exhibition held at Drefelin, SA44 5XB :

‘ The word Rhodio in Welsh means to travel and this show carries the ethos of Rhôd beyond the borders of Wales, widening the dialogue between the rural and the urban, the periphery and the centre. Rhôd is becoming a rural laboratory for the development of new strains of contemporary art practice.

And by choosing a slow food restaurant as our base in Venice for site-specific work, we invite the viewer to see the show in the context of current trends in food production. One could imagine us exhibiting in an international farmers’ market.

Curated by Roger Lougher and presented by Mari Beynon Owen, the interventions are supported by Culture Colony/Y Wladfa Newydd ; Paul Bradley Studio and Pane Vino e San Daniele.

RHODIO will be open every day, 11.00 – 20.30, May 30 – June 4, at Pane Vino e San Daniele, Campo dell’ Angelo Raffaele, Dorsoduro,1722 .
