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, dance, sound and sensory media.

Over the last 8 years he has collaborated closely on many of these works with sound artist Barnaby Oliver and his work continues to embrace notions of plurality and the collaborative process with other artists, the public, place and animals.

Simon is a founder member of the west Wales itinerant artist collective ointment.
