Catalyst Arts is delighted to launch the Catalyst Arts Online Residency with artists Beau W Beakhouse and Sadia Pineda Hameed.
‘The archive is a house, and like most old houses, it grows mold.’
The site is an intuitive and associative archive of research around decay, positing a new experimental form of ‘preservation’ and forming links that are personal, fragile or unfinished through weblogs.
The site will update with new blogposts on the 17th May, and will scatter the archival work across the web, revivifying defunct, forgotten and open resource spaces of information on the 24th May.

Beau W Beakhouse is an artist, filmmaker and curator based in Cardiff. His artistic practice often returns to themes of language, land, the post-colonial, alternate histories and dreams via intersections and convergences. He has upcoming residencies with Tangent Projects and Jerwood UNITe (g39) and a forthcoming solo exhibition with Arcade/Campfa.
Sadia Pineda Hameed is an artist based in Cardiff, Wales. She works in film, installation, text and performance to explore collective and inherited trauma; in particular, the latent ways we speak about this through dreaming, telepathic communion and secrets as an anti-colonial strategy inherent to us. She has shown work with The Bluecoat, MOSTYN, HOAX, Peak and others.
