CATALYST 360º / ANNA SELLEN

924

We are excited to announce that our Catalyst 360° programme is now live! We are proud to present 6 virtual exhibitions the have been produced over the past two months.

The fifth showcase focuses on the work by Anna Sellen, a photographer and multidisciplinary artist, based on the West Coast of Wales. She works with images, sound and text to tell stories about transitions that people and places undergo. Her projects often start autobiographically and evolve through extensive research. Anna is currently artist-in-residence at the Kelvedon Hatch Cold War Bunker (2020-2022).

The virtual exhibition ‘Drip by drip, we are fed with concrete’ is set beneath the gallery at CULTVR Lab.In this project, Anna questions the Cold War legacy through the physical space of the bunker and her family archive. She uses photography, oral history, archives and diaries to examine her own and her family’s lived experiences in the Soviet Union between 1952 and 1986. She is interested in the impact of the political decisions and the state-driven silencing and misinformation on people’s lives and identities, from one generation to the next, and what this means in today’s world.

Catalyst 360° has been supported by the Arts Council of Wales.
