4 October – 13 December 2014
G39, Oxford St, CF24 3DT
As the official launch of the Cardiff Contemporary festival, g39 is pleased to present UDO, a substantial new body of work by Carwyn Evans. Carwyn's sculptural work has resulted from the overlaying of two contrasting cultures – that of agriculture and high-couture. Translating from Welsh as ‘howl’, udo is an animal cry, a verb, an action of direct expression. Expect a contrasting landscape of earth, smell, perfume, decadence, dread, desire and disgust.
