Abstract:Holy Hiatus was a series of temporary public art projects and events curated by Ruth Jones in Cardigan in May 2008. The project focused on social ritual and identity, community and public places. Holy Hiatus refers to the crossing of the threshold between outer and inner consciousness and the artworks explored the vital role that ritual plays in social interaction, stressing the importance of ‘liminal’ or in-between spaces and experiences, where personal and social identities may be creatively transformed. The project included: Five commissioned new works by Alastair MacLennan, Maura Hazelden, Simon Whitehead, Anna Lucas, Yvonne Buccheim. A one-day symposium. A bilingual publication published by Parthian
