A retrospective and re-presentation of screen-based and performance artefacts from Simon Whitehead's career, alongside a live, accumulative archive from the new commission Louphole. Whitehead works from his base in rural West Wales. He originally trained as a geographer and a dancer and over the last 15 years and has developed a body of work from pedestrian practices. Made at walking pace, his works are place-sensitive and involve a process of ritual reconstruction through the body, live performance, dance, sound and film.
