Ty Unnos in Newtown: Antonia Dewhurst

24Jul12

one of the artists whose work most impressed me during the selection of last year’s Lle Celf, Eisteddfod, was Antonia Dewhurst. This summer you can see more of her work, based on the idea of shelter, at Oriel Davies Gallery in Newtown, Powys.

‘gimme shelter’ is a series of micro-structures responding to the 18th Century Welsh tradition of ‘Ty Unnos’ or ‘One Night Home’.

This tradition proclaimed that if someone could build a house between sunset and sunrise on common land, the land would become theirs. These works explore the idea of ‘Home’ and feelings of belonging. To compliment her exhibition, the creation of a full scale ‘Ty Unnos’ in the parkland beside the gallery is planned by Dewhurst.

Antonia Dewhurst will also be undertaking an Artists Residency Tŷ Unnos or ‘One Night home’ constructed in the Newtown parkland adjacent to the gallery.

Antonia Dewhurst graduated in 2011 with a BA in Fine Art from Coleg Menai in Bangor. She is based in North Wales.
