Tim Davies

Presenter Kim Howells and artist Tim Davies view an exhibition of Davies's work at Oriel Mostyn. Davies, a representative at the 2011 Venice Bienalle, is a conceptual artist whose art is as much about the ideas behind the work as the images on the wall. His work is often about memory, the traces left by previous generations. One exhibit, called 'Figures in a Landscape' is made of dozens of framed old postcards from which the figures, the people in the photographs, have been removed. Tim Davies discusses this work with presenter Kim Howells - the ideas behind it and the contemporary questions touched upon in the work that concern identity, belonging, borders, asylum seekers, refugees, though he doesn't expect the audience to necessarily 'get' all this.
