Locws Projects 2010/2
8 October – 31 October 2010
Tine Bech
Jackie Chettur
Rebecca Spooner
Simon Whitehead

To coincide with the Swansea Festival of Music and the Arts, Locws International has commissioned a series of new temporary artworks that reflect the people, culture, heritage and landscape of Swansea.
Danish artist Tine Bech has worked with the communities of St. Thomas, Grenfell Park and Port Tennant as part of the SA1 Swansea Waterfront Art Programme to develop an artwork that reflects the area’s connection to the docks; Rebecca Spooner has responded to the landscape of the city creating rich new film work and Simon Whitehead marks 70 years since the three-nights blitz of 1940 in an interactive journey.
In addition to these new artworks we will also be re-showing Jackie Chettur’s artwork inspired by the Swansea Capehorners: ‘…it is 89 days this morning since we left the Mumbles Head’, that was created for Locws Projects 2010/1 and originally shown at the Civic Centre in April and May 2010.
Information and maps will be available from the National Waterfront Museum in September
