LLAWN 04 and new festival season at MOSTYN

Friday 23 September 2016 from 6.30pm



We are pleased to announce our first ever ‘Festival Season’. Three weeks of exhibitions, events and audience involvement which opens with the launch of LLAWN04 – Llandudno Arts Weekend, a whole weekend of free events along the Promenade and across various venues and spaces in Llandudno.

Friday’s evening launch provides the perfect introduction to this year’s festival with the chance to explore a couple of the main venues and delve into an exhilarating sample of work at your own pace. There are works by two artists curated in partnership at MOSTYN and many other fantastic events and interventions around the town. There’ll be performance, street-games, music, robot-making, dance, visual art, film and the unexpected, all inspired by this year’s theme of Hide/Seek.

Kris Martin


Galleries 2 and 3 hold Belgian artist Kris Martin’s spectacular work T.Y.F.F.S.H.(2011). A full-scale hot air balloon fills the gallery spaces and visitors are invited to enter inside, allowing the architecture of the gallery, and the act of engagement with art, to be considered anew.

Paul Granjon, Am I Robot?


Am I Robot? features Combover Jo, a robot larger than an average dog, who wanders the gallery talking to himself and to visitors. Paul Granjon’s installation presents a live situation that challenges our relation to robots, and our ideas about what they can do.

Hyperimage: Towards a Theory of Expanded Photography – paper presentation at UCL conference

Photography in Academic Research international conference at UCL Heritage Studies, in collaboration with RAI (Royal Anthropological Institute) and Birkbeck, Department of Politics, London, UK, 8-9 Sept 2016

ALFREDO CRAMEROTTI (MOSTYN and eCPR European Centre for Photography Research, University of South Wales) presents a paper on Hyperimage: Towards a Theory of Expanded Photography

Friday 9 September 12:30, Room B10

We are all implicated in photography whether we like it or not. Whether we associate this visual language with a precise function or use it to shape ourselves as individuals and communities, we trade our existence in images. We refer to images and image-making in social, political and cultural act.

The established categories in which photography was once subdivided, practiced, understood and discussed have been reconfigured. It’s as though our society has freed image-making from previously articulated specific applications, blurring the boundaries between genres and functions, and rendering the photographic image as a free-floating subject on its own, detached from any relation specific to its origins; what we may term as “hyperimage’.

‘697 MADRI’ by Stefano Cagol presents a lecture by Alfredo Cramerotti

Posted in nEws and rEleases by alcramer on July 29, 2016

In the frame of the solo project ‘697 MADRI’ by Stefano Cagol, Alfredo Cramerotti holds the lecture ‘The expanded image. The mutation of the role of contemporary photography’

‘The expanded image. The mutation of the role of contemporary photography’

Lecture: August 6, 2016, 18.00 hrs


697 MADRI (697 mothers) refers to the 697 young soldiers died in the First World War in this border area of Trentino South Tyrol and buried by the Austro-Hungarian Monumental Military Cemetery in Bondo.

On July 2nd, 2016 the artist Stefano Cagol called all the women to come to the small village of Bondo (700 inhabitants) in the middle of the Alps and the Dolomites for a participatory performance. Hundreds of women came from all the region and outside and walked and staid on the monumental granite stairs recalling the personal and family suffering beyond flags, troops and belongings. They became part of a new monument to life and this action has been fixed by video and photographic images by the artist.

Now the artworks are on view till September 17th, 2016 by the Antica Chiesa di San Barnaba – Ancient Church of Saint Barnaba in Bondo, together with an installation (aluminum and sound) that recall, with sharp edges, the extreme conditions of the soldiers waging war on the top of these mountains that actually appear as a natural paradise.


In this border region, in a small village in the middle of the Alps, in a symbolic place recalling the continue conflicts and the human consequences of wars, it is extremely relevant the presence of Alfredo Cramerotti for a lecture about the role of images nowadays. Lecture: August 6, 2016, 18.00 hrs

Alfredo Cramerotti is the Director of MOSTYN, the main art center in Wales; he was born in Trentino and this is the first time he comes back for an art event. Cramerotti and Stefano Cagol had the chance to collaborate for the Maldives National Pavilion at 55th Venice Biennale: Cagol as participating artist and Alfredo Cramerotti as part of the curatorial collective CPS-Chamber of Public Secrets.

The lecture ‘The expanded image. The mutation of the role of contemporary photography’ by Alfredo Cramerotti is realized with the participation of Franco Marzatico, Superintendent for Cultural Heritage of the Autonomous Province of Trento.


The project and the collateral program are promoted by the Scuola Musicale Giudicarie:
With the support of the municipality of Sella Giudicarie, BIM Valle del Chiese, BIM Sarca-Mincio-Garda, with the participation of Associazione Nazionale Alpini and Osterreichisches Schwarzes Kreuz.
The iconographic and historical research is curated by Giulia Robol.

Llandudno gallery celebrates its American GI history

An exhibition’s being launched to celebrate the role of a north Wales resort in hosting thousands of American service personnel in the Second World War.

The Mostyn building – now an art gallery – provided food and recreation for American troops living in Llandudno, a complete contrast to the building’s use as a drill hall in the First World War.

MOSTYN exhibition, The School of Art, Science and Technical Classes: Jonathan Shanklin’s talk

Posted in nEws and rEleases by alcramer on July 1, 2016

Great news!

Jonathan Shanklin, who discovered the Antarctic ozone hole, will be speaking about this important scientific breakthrough and his family links to the current MOSTYN exhibition, The School of Art, Science and Technical Classes, on 30 July 2016, 2:00pm at The Imperial Hotel, Llandudno.

Tickets £8. Telephone 01492 868191 to book.

The ozone hole is ‘healing’ according to new research published this week in the journal Science.

Jonathan Shanklin from BAS was one of the scientists who was part of the discovery in 1985. He says:

“It is very clear that the Montreal Protocol is working, that it is clearly leading to a reduction in the amount of ozone destroying chemicals in the atmosphere, and that this reduction is probably leading to a recovery of the Antarctic ozone layer. Nevertheless we will still have ozone holes for perhaps another half century.”…/first-signs-of-healing-in-the-anta…/
