Fotonow CIC presents
by Karen Ingham
Ingham is interested in how Swansea’s ‘Copperopolis’ anchored this process; how the maritime trade of copper, mined in Cornwall and Devon, shipped, smelted and refined in Swansea using coal from the South Wales valleys, laid the foundations for our present day global shipping and communications networks. Her research process for Deluge includes reconstructing journeys between South Wales and South West England, taking coal and copper across road, sea, and cyberspace to recreate these global movements of commodities and peoples. The global ramifications, or ‘ripple’ of these relationships are further explored in the her short artists film ‘Are You Ready (Can You Hear Me?)’ based on Marconi’s first successful telegraphic communications across the South Wales and South West waters.
Deluge is supported by Arts Council Wales and between May and September different iterations of the exhibition will show at Craft In The Bay in Cardiff Bay, The National Park Coastal Gallery (Oriel y Parc) in St Davids, Milford Haven Museum and Galley (with Milford Haven Port Authority), and Swansea Waterfront Museum, before culminating in a final comprehensive exhibition in Plymouth with Fotonow as part of Plymouth Art Weekender 2018 (with additional funding from Arts Council England).
