The final destination for Adain Avion will be at the National Eisteddfod of Wales which in 2012 occupies a former airfield in Llandow, Vale of Glamorgan.
The fuselage will settle on the ‘maes’ during Eisteddfod week and the ‘black box’ will be opened to reveal the archive gathered at the three nesting sites. This footage will be displayed on integrated monitors beneath the interior glass floor of Avion and will be open to Eisteddfod visitors who will be invited to witness the archive.
This concluding installation at the National Eisteddfod of Wales coincides with the final week of London 2012 Olympic Games. On Sunday 12th August, as the Olympics draw to a close, the fuselage will begin its journey home to Spain after depositing the ‘black box’ at St. Fagans National History Museum. This extraordinary contemporary folk archive can then be shown in the context of the National collection as part of Adain Avion’s ongoing legacy.
