The Spolia Drawings at Eston Arts Centre, Middlesbrough.
In The Spolia Drawings, Paul Eastwood exhibits a series of new works alongside the research drawings that formed their inspiration, which he created during his Fellowship at the British School at Rome. Spolia are fragments of old art and architecture incorporated into new structures, where they assume and impose fresh meanings. The City of Rome – a palimpsest of history – abounds in spolia, rubbed imprints of which are on display in the show. Eastwood’s new drawings use the same technique of rubbing to call into being an imaginary architecture of the historic British Isles. Monumental disassembled stone blocks, interspersed with broken inscriptions, are restacked to form new patterns. Their weathered surfaces vie for attention with encroaching ivy. The viewer is invited to consider what original constructions they might have stemmed from, and also why they would have been repurposed and by whom: what are the meanings of the new versus the old?
Translation! Festival 2022
Paul Eastwood, Aiden Power and Katy Humberstone for their session 'Dyfodiaith: Iaith Bwystnon / Language Plague'
Watch 2019 film Dyfodiaith (commissioned by Chapter Gallery, Cardiff), followed by a Q&A. The film’s symbolic imagery ties language to bodies, while body parts build landscapes: a kind of reverse archaeology. The visuals are overlaid with an alternately sung and spoken narrative, delivered in a speculative Celtic/Brythonic language, as an alternative to English/Globish. Indeed, the title Dyfodiaith takes the Welsh word for “dialect” but changes it to mean “future language”.

Pillow Talk Platform
In their BSR Fellowship projects, Paul Eastwood and Hester Schadee were both interested in hegemonic language and the tangible remains of the past (Eastwood: Boustrophedon: A Legacy Left in Stone and Ruin; Schadee: Roman Relics and Renaissance Collectors). They collaborated for a mini-exhibition entitled Memento Monumenta, which explored notions of remembrance through pseudo-facsimile funerary artefacts and inscriptions.
