“Gareth’s work is sharp queer activism. It is a contemporary charge of potent intent, amplifying urgent concerns of now with a touch that is at once both considered and well crafted. Highly recommended.” – Robert Pacitti, Director, SPILL Festival of Performance
I make work about penetrability and the cis-male body; the in-between space occupied by the HIV ‘undetectable’ body (neither well or unwell in the conventional sense); and the queerness of the voice, immaterial yet of the body. My practice spans live performance, writing, music, movement and curation. Sometimes I combine these individual art forms into multi-disciplinary performances. The rest of the time I treat them as independent, discrete processes with their own outputs.
As well as my solo practice, I collaborate with internationally-recognised artists and collectives. My current collaborative practice includes sound artist and story teller, Gemma Nash, and visual artist, Ranulph Redlin.
I’m grateful to have received the support of Arts Council England, Live Art Development Agency, British Council, Unlimited, Metal Peterborough, HOME, ]performance space[, Dublin Live Art Festival, hÅb, and many more organisations in developing my work.
