Movement artist Simon Whitehead works from his base in rural West Wales. He has developed a body of work from the pedestrian. Encountering situations at walking pace, his works are place-sensitive and often involve a process of ritual reconstruction through the body, live performance, sound and sensual media. Over the last five years he has collaborated closely with sound artist Barnaby Oliver.
"My work moves from the desire to travel a distance in order to encounter the other. The smallest and most subtle part of my work is in the telling. The majority of the work happens whilst in motion - on the street, the hill or in a room. In this way my process is place and energetically-sensitive, the outcome often unresolved and indeterminate."
