Description

“A split screen video (that) examines the artist’s youth growing up here in Merseyside from 1974-1996, a turbulent period for the region. Created using found & archival footage, and drawing influences from social realist landscape painting and DJ sets from the mid 90s, the video features the Kirkby rent strike, Toxteth Riots, Dockers Strike, Quadrant Park, Liverpool Garden Festival and This Morning with Richard and Judy, as the artist reflects on a social landscape wherein history might be on the verge of repeating itself”.
