‘Find.ers.Keep.ers’ sheds light on the threat of bridleways becoming extinguished in the UK. ‘Áo dài’ challenges diversity representation in the British and Welsh landscape, while the film ‘Walking Together’ is a meditative walk on horseback exploring our relationships with more-than-humans, specifically equines.
Through a series of performative acts, SLQS questions ideas around rights to roam, land rights and diversity in the equestrian world. As a Franco-Vietnamese artist and urban-dwelling rider living in East London, she immerses herself in the British and Welsh countryside, changing the colour of its landscape.
A Franco-Vietnamese artist living in the UK, SLQS’s work is multi-disciplinary and researches artistic processes to decolonise spatial orders from imperialist, sexist and racist structures.
SLQS has presented work at Totally Thames, Spitalfields Music, Rich Mix, Procreate Project, Live Art Development Agency, Royal College of Art, Brunel Museum, Migration Museum, Museum of the Home and Attenborough Art Centre. She is currently a selected member of UKNA New Artist Collective 2022-23 taking place in Lincoln.
Artists, writers and performers are being invited to attend the symposium for discussions about ‘other’ bodies in the British and Welsh landscape and relationships with animals, plants.
‘More than human relations’ will also be discussed which may include interests in proximity, animal perspectives and interspecies hybridity and how these ideas may intersect with rights to roam and land access.

aTE is an arts-organisation interested in ideas of distance, connectivity and remoteness. Creating a vast global network of connected topographies and reaching the world's most isolated places, aTE facilitates collaboration between artists in remote and wilderness locations or those that feel themselves to be ‘remote’ in other ways, cut off from the networks which usually sustain a practice.
The organisation also hosts events, bringing together exchange participants and helping them to realise their collaborations in the form of exhibitions, lectures, publications, ‘face to face’ and virtual residencies.
