a retrospective exhibition

oriel Henry thomas
West Wales School of the Arts Gallery

6th November - 12th December 2008

Peter Bodenham curated the exhibition and I was asked to show Reconcile I & II. So how to re-present a two performances, one over an hour long, very site specific, with the viewing restricted by the space? One very intimate....

I was given a very good documentary video by Heike Roms, that clearly showed the context and the audience; this was shown on a very small dvd player. I also took photographic images from the dvd of pertinent moments/movements. There were framed pieces of work containing nails hair feathers roses and photographs.

see here for Reconcile I & II on this blog.

all my ointment work on this blog can be found here

After some while I chose to do my moving from a chair. I sat, as soon as I started to move it was prayer, contemplation.
