Beau W Beakhouse

is an artist based in Cardiff. He/they also run curatorial, radio and print project LUMIN and have a collaborative practice with Sadia Pineda Hameed. Their artistic practice works across film, text, woodcraft, sound and installation, and frequently returns to language, postcolonial theory, alternative pedagogies, non-institutional spaces, community projects and techniques of dreaming and speculative fiction. They are drawn to relation, intersection and convergence, and their practice is concerned with creating alternative spaces of dialogue and collective methods of working. 

They have shown work with The Mosaic Rooms, Chapter, Jerwood, Cittadellarte - Fondazione Pistoletto, Gentle/Radical, Arcade Campfa, Freelands, g39, Tangent Projects, Peak, MOSTYN, Literature Wales, Where I’m Coming From, SHIFT, Made in Roath, Wales Millenium Centre and others.
