Cors Ddu / Black Bog

June 10 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Allen Fisher

Allen Fisher has created a new collection of paintings on y Waen Ddu, The Black Bog – a rare raised peat bog situated on the Craig Y Cilau nature reserve in the Brecon Beacons National Park. The artist is drawn to the cultural associations of peat bogs as sites of Iron Age sacrifice, preservation and divination as well as their ecological importance as rich environments of biodiversity and carbon capture. Peak, in collaboration with BBC Cymru R&D has produced 360 degree film footage and binaural sound recordings of Allen creating new work on site.

Saturday 10th June, 10am-1pm
Arts Alive Wales, The Old School, Brecon Road, Crickhowell

FREE. To book a place contact: info@artsalivewales.org.uk

Join us for an informal event at the Arts Alive Wales studio to view Allen’s work in progress and documentary footage. Allen will be joined by an historian and ecologist to discuss the unique context of the Black Bog. Members of the BBC Cymru R&D team will discuss the potential for digital technology in artist projects.

Allen Fisher is based in Hereford and is a poet, painter and tutor associated with the British Poetry Revival and the Fluxus movement. He is Emeritus Professor of Poetry and Art at the University of Manchester. His work is represented by Tate gallery.
