Bethan Huws is a conceptual artist interested in language, memory, architecture and place.

In autumn 2009, we commissioned two new works by Huws in collaboration with Stour Valley Arts.

A film, shot during a wedding reception at Margate’s Winter Gardens, was screened under a canopy of trees in King’s Wood, Challock on 26-27 September. At the same time, two temporary text works were installed at Margate’s Nayland Rock Shelter and the seafront shelter on Marine Drive.
Huws has produced a wide-ranging body of work including public art commissions for Artangel and Münster Sculpture Projects. Solo exhibitions include Museum Serralves, Porto, Portugal (2009), University of Massachusets Kunstmuseum St Gallen, Switzerland (2007) and Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff.
