Wales was in residence in 2015 with Justin Shoulder and Bhenji Ra. Together they worked on developing a new body of work based on the meeting point of three very different practices based in visual arts, performance and sound. The body of work was based on both a cultural and queer lineage, and the dissection of questions concerning identity and personal existence within their individual landscapes.
