Welcome/Croeso to artist Sam Hasler

Sam Hasler
Tooth&Clawr is excited to welcome a new host for the Experimentica session. Sam Hasler is an artist based in Cardiff who uses text as a main focus within his practice. He will be hosting alongside T&C artist Kathryn Ashill as part of their collaboration BACKWARDS THINKING. We will miss Phil Owen at this session and wish him luck for a new performance he will be presenting at the festival. We also look forward to having Phil's input and great hosting ability for the future session of Tooth&Clawr which will focus on Chapter Galleries next exhibition (date TBC).

EXPERIMENTICA 2012: Unseen/Anweledig

Tooth&Clawr is going back to its roots and is making an appearance at this years Experimentica. We have chosen some texts that we thought will support the overall festival theme of the Unseen, whilst we have also taken into consideration the title BACKWARDS THINKING, which is this years contextualisation programme.

Just to remind you about the next Tooth and Clawr.

We'll be meeting at Chapter (hopefully in the gallery, but otherwise upstairs) on Tuesday the 23rd, at 7. The main texts for this session HG Wells' The Time Machine and Alan Lightman' Einstein's Dreams. Both pieces of writing present a particularly complex ideas on future and time travel. If you would like a copy of the texts then please email us at toothandclawr@gmail.com.

Hope to see you there.


Hello there!
Sorry for the silence since our last Tooth&Clawr session that took place at the end of last July. It was a huge success, with great discussion and debate around the 'Something Like Nothing Happens Anywhere'. The title of the last exhibition was taken from Philip Larkin's 'I Remember I Remember', which gave us a strong literary foundation on which to make our reading selections.

For those who missed the session, or who haven't read the poem this below link to a video of Larkin himself reading the poem is for you:


We are gearing up for a busy and exciting Autumn and Winter programme. Alongside our usual Tooth&Clawr sessions, we will also hold two sessions to compliment Experimentica 2012: Unseen.
We look forward to the fruitful discussions that we will have with you about art and literature in the upcoming months.

We will be located inside Chapter Gallery for this session. It was felt by all that attended that we should be surrounded by the artwork that we were discussing.

We look forward to seeing you there.
