‘Dyfodiaith’ (future – language) 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.
‘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?
During EXPERIMENTICA artist Paul Eastwood, will be undertaking a studio residency and further exploring ‘Dyfodiaith’ as a larger body of work. Be sure to check our Instagram account (@chaptergallery) and our website (www.chapter.org) for updates and to see where his research takes him.
Eastwood (b. 1985, Wrexham) obtained a postgraduate diploma from Royal Academy Schools in 2014, having previously studied Painting at Wimbledon School of Art.
