Profile

Self-Employed Creative Practitioner and Visual Artist with comprehensive co-ordination and administration skills. A motivated, organised and enthusiastic individual with an eye for detail who is passionate about the arts, working on a diverse range of projects as a creative workshop leader and visual artist working predominately in video, sculpture and installation.

Gweni Llwyd’s art practice explores how physical and digital materials may be embedded with social, sensory and cultural meanings, and how this may be mediated through digital video. Titled after the artist’s great aunt Beta, Anti Beta explores ideas around memory, nostalgia and rapidly developing technology. Prompted by transcribing letters written by her deceased grandfather into Artificial Intelligence ChatBot software, she classifies, curates and collages material from personal family libraries and online open source archives together, connecting seemingly unconnected digital artefacts to create abstracted narratives.

Gweni Llwyd graduated from Cardiff School of Art and Design in 2017 and has exhibited throughout the UK, in Italy and online. Recent exhibitions include Gripping Wrists - LUX Scotland & Tendency Towards, Aberdeen (2018), Oriel Davies Open, Newtown (2018) and Sightseers, g39 Cardiff (2018). In 2018, she was the recipient of the Arts Council of Wales Brian Ross Memorial Award and the National Eisteddfod of Wales Young Artist Scholarship.
