The work of Welsh artist Tim Davies, who is set to represent Wales at the 2011 Venice Biennale, has gone on display in a new exhibition at the Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff.

Tim Davies: 50th Year To Heaven features new and existing works by the Swansea-based artist and includes a commission that documents Davies' year long contemplation of the use of photojournalistic images as a witness to local and global events.

The work seeks out patterns amongst the ordinary and extraordinary - where the trivial is positioned next to the brutal, the usual alongside the unusual - within the framework of 365 days. Every day then acts as a witness.
