Heike Roms and Gareth Llŷr Evans- Yr Ymarferiadur: What's Welsh for Live Art?

Contemporary art terms befuddle, infuriate and exclude; but they can also enable, make visible and help give birth to something new. YR YMARFERIADUR offers a playful investigation into discourses on contemporary art and their translatability by creating a new dictionary of Welsh contemporary art terms… Because we do not just name what we create, but we create by naming.

Heike Roms and Gareth Llŷr Evans are performance researchers based in Wales.
