Statement

Aled Simons’ work includes collage, installation, video, photography, text and performance.  Often with a light-hearted approach, Simons’ work draws on notions of discovery and rediscovery, the collective conscience and archival research. Simons’ work attempts to present a vision of the past, present and future. 

Aled has worked extensively with Art’s Birthday Wales, and studio based artist collective Supersaurus, both of which he co-founded.  These groups have focussed on social and interactive performances and events within a local and global artistic context. 

His performance work has taken the form of a tongue in cheek, post-apocalyptic covers band that attempt to recreate the hits of the 1980s as if all record of it had been wiped out by some form of catastrophe.  His collage series ‘The Arrangement’ won Welsh Artist of the Year mixed media prize in 2011.
