TROELLI, National Eisteddfod 2017

Manon Awst was commissioned to develop and curate this special exhibition to mark the National Eisteddfod’s presence on Anglesey in 2017. ‘Troelli’ (to spin) and its connected activities was an opportunity to promote art as an interdisciplinary and collaborative process, nurturing new ideas about how we relate to landscapes today. The exhibition and outdoor installation combined paintings, sculpures, films, performances, maps, geological samples and plants, all connected to the island. It inspired the Eisteddfod audience to reconsider their relationship to the ground beneath their feet.
