About

Paul Eastwood is a Wrexham-based artist with a practice that explores art as a form of social production and cultural storytelling. Working widely across text, sculpture, performance, video, drawing, printmaking and textiles, Paul creates narrated histories and futures to investigate how place and objects can communicate cultural identities.

During the Litmus residency, Paul will develop the beginnings of his ambitious project ‘Dyfodiaith’ (future – language), which imagines speaking to an unknown future where the Brythonic language has remained alive, evolving throughout the centuries into something strange and unfamiliar. The Brythonic language, collectively a group of ancient Celtic languages, were spoken in Britain before and during the Roman occupation, surviving as Welsh and Cornish, and taken to Brittany by emigrants. ‘Dyfodiaith’ creatively investigates the cultural context of the Welsh language in relation to minority languages spoken worldwide, bilingualism and common languages, asking: What language will we speak in the future? How will it sound and what will it look like?

Building on the legacy of Oriel Davies’ previous initiatives - TestBed and In Focus - Litmus is an exhibition and development programme offering curatorial and practical support for five early career artists based in Wales and the Welsh Borders to research, develop and present new work at Oriel Davies.
