Sean Edwards 'Undo Things Done'

About

Undo Things Done, a poetic inquiry into place, politics and class intertwined with personal histories, takes as its starting point Sean Edwards' experience of growing up on a council estate in Cardiff in the 1980s.

The artist captures and translates what he calls a condition of 'not expecting much' into a shared visual language; one that evokes a way of living familiar to a great number of people.

Edwards’ emotionally resonant body of work - film, sculptures, prints and Welsh quilts - was produced for Wales in Venice on the occasion of the 2019 Venice Biennale and guest curated by our Head of Programme Marie-Anne McQuay. As a project partner we’re thrilled to bring the exhibition here to Liverpool as the artist evolves the work and its concerns. Elements of the Venice show will span Bluecoat’s four gallery spaces interwoven with new and older works that resonate with the same sense of autobiography found in Undo Things Done. These include Maelfa, 2010 a film shot by the artist in the 1970s shopping centre of the Llanedeyrn estate where Edwards grew up and which provides the precursor to Undo Things Done nearly a decade later.
