Regular followers of this Blog will remember my post a while back about Adele Nozedar’s beautiful The Secret Language of Birds Tarot http://philipcarrgomm.wordpress.com/2011/10/06/the-secret-language-of-birds/#respond
The wonderful Adele is also responsible for the creation of the country’s smallest art gallery: The Llanfrynach Telephone Box. From August, Adele was given permission to use the box as an art space for six months. Since that time there have been exhibitions by various artists such as,
‘The Magical Fishwishery Box’
Enter the box. Take a fish. Write your wish upon the fish. Attach your fish to the wires on the outside of the box. If at dusk the box lights up, then the magical fishwishery has granted your wish. If not, have another go.
Just recently the box was home to the work of Sarah Howcroft:
Sarah is a shamanic healer and teacher, wilderness educator, craftswoman and artist, living and working in the Brecon Beacons National Park. A few years ago she became very interested in the way indigenous peoples have, for many millennia, used body decoration to celebrate rites of passage, convey their intention, and create magic, and this interest led to her developing body art as a form of healing. People with many reasons for seeking healing have been re-inspired by seeing the colours and beauty of their own Spirit, and this exhibition is a celebration of the success and fun of this technique. Visit the phone box to enjoy Sarah’s amazing work, have a go at painting yourself whilst you’re there, and send her a picture using your phone! You can read more about Sarah’s work at www.shamanism-wales.co.uk.
The box continues to be a gallery until the end of January and is a magical use of a public space in the most unexpected of places!
