Black Gold
Black Gold is a body of work that explores themes such as memory, history, belonging, absence and change. The work focuses on Aberpergwm Colliery in South Wales, a working drift coal mine that reopened, after years of closure, in March 2018. The rare opportunity to see behind the scenes, go underground and spend time with the miners who work in the largest working mine left in the UK, provides an insight into the incredible solidarity and comradery so associated with this unique profession and way of life.
