Visitors to Llandudno in north Wales—especially fans of 1970s Minimalist art—are in for a treat this spring. Mostyn Gallery has re-created in the seaside town US artist Rosemarie Castoro’s public art piece Trap a Zoid, comprising cylindrical logs in the form of an asymmetrical geometric shape. Described by Castoro, who died in 2015, as a “painting you can walk in”, the eye-catching land art piece—made up of reclaimed tree trunks donated by a local north Welsh timber cooperative—is visible from the West Shore, overlooking Llandudno beach (until 5 March). The work was first shown in 1978 as part of Creative Time’s Art on the Beach project on Manhattan’s lower east side (the restaging of Trap A Zoid is supported by the Henry Moore Foundation). Meanwhile devotees keen to know more about Castoro can pop into Mostyn to see Carving Space, an exhibition spanning the late artist’s career (until 24 February). Clare Harding, the interim director of Mostyn, says in a statement: “The Mostyn exhibition provides an unprecedented opportunity to start new conversations and inspire new thinking about Castoro’s sculpture and reflect upon her legacy.”
