Biography

Harvey Dimond is a British-Barbadian writer, artist and curator based between South Africa and Scotland. Their multi-disciplinary practice examines queer ecologies and the entangled histories and trajectories of the climate crisis and anti-Blackness across the realm of the Atlantic.  

“Dual Identity, to me, means navigating geographies that are imposed on you by others, whether real or imagined. It’s others dictating whether or not you ‘belong’.  It’s existing, on the surface, in multiple places but never being able to form deep and stable roots. But it also means access to a multitude of cultures, and an ability to feel comfortable and make meaningful relationships in an array of places across the world.” 

Harvey Dimond’s solo exhibition so many keen and subtle masters, was recently shown at Fruitmarket, Edinburgh (2023), and recent commissions include Edinburgh Art Festival (2022), Art Walk Porty (2022) and CCA Glasgow (2021).
