In this exhibition Tim Davies presents three films made in response to his invitation to represent Wales at the Venice Biennale in 2011.

The films Drift, Frari and Capricci will be shown together for the first time in a single installation.

They create a dramatic and poignant portrait of Venice, creating links with the way the city is represented in the Museum’s historic collection by artist such as Canaletto, Monet and Whistler.

Drift and Frari featured in the Wales in Venice presentation at the 54th Venice Biennale in 2011 organised by the Arts Council of Wales.

Tim Davies works in a wide range of media including film, found imagery, sculpture and installation. He has exhibited widely in Wales and internationally.

He was awarded the Gold Medal at the National Eisteddfod in 2003 and was shortlisted for the first Artes Mundi International Visual Arts Prize in 2004. He lives and works in Swansea.
