Join us for the Ferns launch of Do the Little Things - a new public artwork.
The artwork is designed for two locations: St Davids Cathedral, Pembrokeshire, and St Edan's Cathedral Ferns, Wexford.
The three giant bee hives made from cedar wood have been created by Bedwyr Williams, whose project has been realised with the support of Contemporary Art Society Consultancy.
These ‘living sculptures’ will house live bee colonies and Do the Little Things connects the two communities of St Davids and Ferns through the practice of beekeeping.
The bee colonies are being cared for by local beekeepers and community groups, who will be harvesting and selling honey in labelled jars designed by the artist and local school children.
Bedwyr says: “I’m interested in objects that invite communities to become active participants to make the artwork whole. St David’s last words were “Gwnewch y pethau bychain” or “Do the little things.” This ethos has guided the development of my proposal, which is founded on the story of St David and St Aidan and steeped in the magic and history of these two intertwined locations.”
Sited in the grounds of St Edan's Cathedral, this edition of the work opens to the public on Saturday 15th April 12- 3 pm. The launch will include Q&A with artist Bedwyr Williams, music by Melanie O'Reilly and David Creevy, 'The Chord On Blues' Ferns Community Choir, storytelling and folklore, beekeeping demo by 'Ferns Honey' followed by tea and cake.
The event is free and all are welcome.
Please register for the event so that we know how many people to cater for
