Artes Mundi 10: Taloi Havini at MOSTYN at MOSTYN in Llandudno, Wales, Llandudno 20 October 2023 — 24 February 2024 Entrance is free — Visit now

Llandudno’s Mostyn gallery welcomes artist Taloi Havini as part of the Artes Mundi 10 biennial and international contemporary art prize. In its 10th edition, the festival is spread across five venues in Wales, taking part for the first time, featuring seven artists, each presenting new projects, unseen works and some UK debuts.

Taloi Havini (Nakas Tribe, Hakö people) was born in Arawa, Autonomous Region of Bougainville. The artist, curator and collaborator utilises a research-based practice, closely tied to the land and communities of Bougainville, in Papa New Guinea. She employs a multitude of techniques and mediums from photography, audio, video, and print to sculpture and installation. The key themes in her oeuvre include knowledge and its protection, communication, mapping and representation. Using these concepts Havini closely examines the relationships to land and place.

The winner of the prestigious £40,000 Artes Mundi Prize – the UK’s largest contemporary art prize – will be announced in January during the exhibition run.
