‘Don’t bite the hand that feeds’ was made during our residency at Aberystwyth Arts Centre in collaboration with Bwlch Nant yr Arian, a kite feeding station in Ponterwyd. A still life made up of meat and flowers was set up on a Red Kite feeding island, which the red kites feasted on.
Following this residency, we then continued this work with a panel discussion at Arcadecardiff. The panel included two artists (Matthew Macaulay + Ingrid Schildermans) and Dr. Lizzie Wilberforce from the Welsh Wildlife Trust. The panel was chaired by us who asked a series of questions relating to the theme of conservation and sustainability (in an art context as well as the context of the red kite’s succesful conservation story).
