Welsh contemporary artist and sculptor Laura Ford will talk about her intriguing work at the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery in Swansea at 1pm this afternoon.

The Glynn Vivian is currently showing an exhibition of three major pieces by Cardiff-born artist Ford, entitled Beast and Other Works.

Following the inclusion of Ford's work Beast at the 2005 Venice Biennale, the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery exhibited the work in 2006 as part of the Contemporary Sculpture series. The work was so popular with its visitors that the gallery purchased it for its permanent collection in 2008.

Beast and Other Works shows the gallery's acquisition alongside two more recent works by the artist; Espalier Girl (2007) and Mummers (2011).

Laura Ford, Beast and Other Works runs at the Glynn Vivian until 4 September.

The artist will talk this afternoon from 1pm about her current exhibition at the gallery and also her recent public art work, Little Bird, which formed part of the annual Locws International exhibition: Art Across the City, in Swansea.
