The Times has a piece about John Cale and his project for the Venice Biennale:
Archive film, provided by the Welsh Arts Council, will be used in Cale’s show, but he has also been filming the Wales of today with the cinematographer Bevis Bowden. “I fully realise this show will be very public,” he sighs. “I will be out here. I will be judged.” He also admits, in a positive piece of self-criticism, that “doing this art has been much harder than music”.
