LLAWN – Llandudno Arts Weekend No1-3

September 2013 // Llandundo Arts Weekend No1 : Commissioned by Mostyn Estates and Mostyn

LLAWN was a boutique international arts festival that Rees conceived and curated for three seasons. It rediscovered and commemorated Llandudno’s concealed past uniquely via art, artefact, architecture, action/interaction and participation. The result, over one packed weekend per season, was an extraordinary array of multi-disciplines and locations, incorporating buildings (usually off limits to the public), the pavement, the promenade, the pier, bathing machines, empty shops, galleries, chapels and further nooks and crannies.

At its heart, LLAWN was a celebration of Llandudno, The Queen of Welsh Resorts and its surroundings through the objects and buildings that form the rural and urban fabric of its origins. It shed light on relinquished spaces, resurrected an iconic portable Victorian structure, and re-positioned them in a contemporary and socially interactive context.
