rydym i gyd yn fregus / we are all fragile
Touring solo exhibition
The nature of glass, a man-made material, reflects the ideas behind this body of work. There is playfulness between surfaces, forms, light and movement. Pieces are shown alongside moving image and sound, made with the glass pieces, adding layers of reference and moments of context. They contain traces of stories, of lived experience, and point to Bird-Jones’ own narrative.
Chris Bird-Jones produced a series of spoon-like forms, both symbolic and sensuous. Interacting with these pieces requires care; to be considered and secure, cradled in one’s arms like a newborn child. One slip and all would be lost, shattered, mirroring the fragility of our human condition, of a life in balance.
