Exhibition: Be our Guest, Oriel Davies, Newtown.

Thirty artists selected to re-visit and challenge the expected norms, attributes and desires normally associated with the notion of the traditional Bed & Breakfast.

I explored the concept of the comforting full morning breakfast, juxtaposed with the images revealed as the plate is cleared. The Welsh Dresser’s role as the repository of family history and pride is revisited.
