Formed in 2001 and based in West Wales, Ointment is an itinerant artists' collective – of six visual artists, performance artists and dancers – that responds to environmental and rural change. Over the last six years the organisation has developed a place-sensitive language of ideas, performance and images, in conversation with local and international audiences. Projects have been presented and performed in milking barns, the Preseli Hills and the coastline, and alongside farmers, GM protesters and the public.
