64°north by Carmen Marchena Alonso opens 3/April at 76m2

“64°north” is a solo exhibition by Carmen Marchena Alonso, Spanish photographer, mountaineer and climber.  The exhibition features her analogue work from Iceland, the Pyrenees and, prevalently, Greenland, where Carmen travels every year, and where she sometimes works as a kayak and trekking guide, exploring the fjords, glaciers and icy seas around the island. Using various cameras and experimenting with different types of film, Carmen captures beautiful and surreal landscapes full of colours we wouldn't expect to see in a place known better for being blanketed in white snow and ice.

You can find Carmen’s work on her page:

“64°north” is the third in a series of 9 exhibitions that will be organised in 2018 in 76m2, Pontypool by the*kickplate*project, with the support from the Arts Council of Wales, Torfaen Council's Arts Development and Pontypool Community Council. 

Welsh info coming soon!

"wasted films" - final week

Hello everyone,

We just wanted to let you know that Mads Madison's show "wasted films" is open for one more week in 76m2. Due to the snow closure earlier this month, we've been open on Mondays, so you can also visit us on the 19th of March before we close on Wednesday the 21st. See you in Pontypool!

"wasted films" opening + snow update!

Evening everyone,

We only just opened Mads Madison's exhibition on Tuesday the 21st when we had to shut on Thursday due to an unprecedented snowfall! Wales is currently quite thoroughly snowed in, many of our local roads are closed, and sadly we had no chance of getting to the gallery in Pontypool. We're hoping to re-open on Monday the 5th (and we'll keep the gallery open on Mondays to make up for the lost time during this exhibition).


For now, we'd like to share some photos from the installation and opening of the exhibition, and we hope we'll be able to welcome you in 76m2 as soon as the roads are safe and clear!
