‘When the artist-in-residence proposal was first made, I didn’t consider there was any real risk in having an artist roaming around the airport, albeit certain restrictions would have to be imposed for his own safety! If I’m honest, I probably didn’t comprehend the complete significance of what I was saying yes to when I gave my agreement to the project’
Jon Horne, Managing Director
Cardiff International Airport.
‘Thank you Jon.’
Richard Powell, Artist-in Residence.
An essay ‘Daniele Procida, Moth catalogue.
‘Humanity’s dream of flight came true. So what are we dreaming now?
That we have not stopped dreaming is clear enough. Appeals and references to the dream abound, all around us while work like Richard Powell’s indicates that the reality has simply given the dream new ideas and experiences around which to coalesce. We dream on, and now projected through new realities- actualities which didn’t exist before, not even in the imagination- its hold upon us is as strong as ever.’
