Dylan Huw is a writer living in Cardiff, Wales, where he works collaboratively across artistic disciplines and languages. He co-runs mwnwgl, a curatorial platform for art/writing in and around Welsh languages, and is a Creative Associate with the rural contemporary art organisation Peak Cymru. He recently guest-edited an issue of Cynfas, the National Museum of Wales’ digital magazine, on the theme of queer looking, and was awarded the 2021 Geraint George Scholarship for a text reflecting on time spent on an artists residency on climate change in Snowdonia.
An initiative by Occasional Groundwork – an alliance of EVA International (Ireland’s Biennial of Contemporary Art), GIBCA (Göteborg International Biennial for Contemporary Art, Sweden), and LIAF (Lofoten International Art Festival, Norway) – Groundings is an ongoing series of co-commissioned texts that explore themes relevant to the contemporary art biennial and the shift in conditions imposed by the ongoing pandemic. Dylan Huw’s FIRE AND FIRE AND FIRE: NOTES FROM A BURNT-OUT AGE is the third text in the Groundings series, selected through an open call by artist Dennis McNulty and representatives from the Occasional Groundwork network.
