Dark Light

A collaborative work with Chris Hunt.  Shown with a spoken word performance at the Whitstable Biennale of Film and Performance, June 2018, the piece is a response to the poem Remembrance by Friedrich Hölderlin.  Amongst other things, the work reflects on the hidden, underlying history of slavery that is concealed within the poem’s image of Bordeaux, a slave port until the 19th century.
