OOPARTs with Ben Hartley and Buoys Buoys Buoys

Out of Place Artefacts, is a duo exhibition by Ben Hartley & Buoys Buoys Buoys. Lo! Artefacts from a lost history and a speculative future; relics and sigils; they take you now on an otherworldly journey into a space where time is in flux. Explore how the past becomes shrouded in mystery, where legends and stories form.

Ooparts is an exhibition about objects, how they act as vessels for the stories bestowed on them through folk tradition and community play, and their importance in the construction of heritage and identity. Using speculative futures and fictionalised Welsh artefacts, the exhibition brings together imagined relics reinterpreted with scavenged things, demonstrating how these everyday objects and materials can become vessels for legend.
