Adain Avion

June 2012 // Commissioned by Arts Council of Wales as part of London 2012 Cultural Olympiad and London Festival 2012

Rees devised and delivered Adain Avion, which was selected as Wales’ flagship project for the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad and London Festival 2012. It took the form of a DC9 Aeroplane transformed into a mobile arts space, social sculpture and travelling time capsule that migrated and nested at key locations around Wales . Over 2,000 participants, 50 artists and 65 community groups were involved in the project, 150 events in total with an overall audience of 48.000.

A simple idea, beautifully executed, Ghost Parade deftly sidestepped the blast furnace of polemic to tap into the collective memory of a community. And beside the screen, Adain Avion waited with a look which could only be described as steely. The Telegraph
