1. Romily Alice Walden’s work is concerned with physicality and its interplay with other social categorisations and power differentials.
  2. At the core of their practice is an interrogation of embodiment under late stage capitalism.
  3. Walden’s work questions contemporary western society's relationship with care, tenderness and fragility in relation to our bodies, our communities and our ecosystem.
  4. Romily is interested in our ability (and failure) to navigate physicality, interdependency and vulnerability both communally and individually. 
  5. How can access remain generative? What are the limits of translation? What can we find at the edges and boundary layers of ability and somatic experience?
  6. The vulnerability of the body has served as a focus for Walden’s practice since 2017; recent work seeks to disturb overly simplistic understandings of the disabled body, looking to bring an ethic of care, a connection between the land and the body, and a cripped concept of performance into conversation with their work.
  7. Their practice spans text, printed matter, performance, video and coded arduino control systems, all of which are undertaken with a socially-engaged and research-led working methodology.
