The Tethered Horse
I had lived in Cardiff for two years before anyone mentioned Splott Beach. Its discreet entrance, barely one metre across, is nestled within a lay-by on Rover Way’s industrial estate. Over the course of three months, I explored the beach and the relationship between nature, industry, and the nearby community. I was constantly moved and surprised; the landscape could present kindness, poetry, normality, and dystopia in a single day. The Tethered Horse was an attempt to capture the feeling of the place, not to convey a linear narrative. Whether studying a scene through my ground glass or speculating about a local horror with new friends, I spent my days in a world that seemed to fall between fiction and reality.
