Rhona Byrne

Learning To Fly Over Swansea
St. Mary’s Church

Rhona Byrne spent time navigating the air above Swansea in a series of flying lessons. In her moving and evocative film she documented this altered perspective on reality.

Learning how to fly over a city that she explored as an artist, Rhona considered ideas of belief and the existential interactions with spaces we experience.

The film projected in St. Mary’s, Swansea’s largest and most central church, engaged us in a meditative experience of place as well as a fascinating visual depiction of a changing city.
