Made in Roath 2017

Art Collaboration | 2017 | Completed

Studio Gennaio recently collaborated with Jessica Wright (@jessicaowright1) and James McColl (@jamesmccoll999) for Cardiff’s Made in Roath festival 2017.

Studio Gennaio created a site-specific immersive space within the confines of a residential garden and garage in which festival-goers experienced Jessica and James’s audiovisual project Collide-o-Vision - Observation of Beautiful Forms.

A lightweight structure, exploring reflection, symmetry and pattern, was formed from plastic electrical conduit and wrapped with old VHS tape, collected from local residents. The hidden memories and documents of everyday life contained within this magnetic tape cocooned the space, creating a unique, tactile and intimate viewing experience, complementing the artists’ work.
