Ann Jordan is a Fine Artist who creates site specific works often related to either the urban or rural landscapes using a variety of handcrafted techniques. Strata is made from naturally coloured fleeces of Welsh sheep and represents the fragility of our coastline. Erosion whether through continental drift, natural elements or manmade interventions will often reveals the beauty of the underlying folds and layers of geology.

Ann has exhibited throughout Wales and beyond, including Venice, France and Colorado. She is a Founder Director of Elysium Gallery in Swansea.

Ann has been awarded grants from the ACW, Swansea Dylan Thomas Centenary Fund and the Brecon Beacon National Park Authority Regeneration Fund for her seminal work cwtch located on the Black Mountain.

Ephemeral Coast, www.ephemeralcoast.com is a curatorial research project led by Celina Jeffery. It brings together artists, writers and climate change experts to explore how curating can advance consideration of coastal climate change.

Ephemeral Coast identifies the coastline as a site and indicator of the radical shifts in geography literally taking place now as a result of environmental change. It proposes that curating contemporary art is a unique process through which we may discover, analyze, and re-imagine the emotive discourses surrounding these ecological and cultural transformations.
