Wednesday, 29 July 2020 to Friday, 31 July 2020

Explore your stories of grief and hope through photography and collage, with interdisciplinary artist R.I.P. Germain.

Through dialogue and making, you’ll work together to explore experiences of loss that have resulted from the events of recent months. In a safe space, you’ll discuss the systems that perpetuate racial injustice, and the movements that counter it. What are some of the different forms of grief? What have we lost, individually and collectively? How can we make sense of our experiences through visual storytelling?

This project is a collaboration between Cubitt's Curatorial Fellows Languid Hands and Institute of Anything, our young people's programme. The project will inform R.I.P. Germain's exhibition, taking place in the autumn as part of Languid Hands' programme No Real Closure.

Young people aged 16-24 who live or go to school in Islington

Wednesday 29th July, Thursday 30th July, Friday 31st July

Institute of Anything is our young people's programme. Young people work alongside contemporary artists, develop skills and make friends. It’s called Institute of Anything because anything is possible. We support young people to take their art practice in new directions.

This project has been commissioned as part of Islington's Summerversity and Launchpad programme, and is supported by Islington Council.

Artist ( Description ): 

Luton-based artist R.I.P. Germain’s solo exhibition Dead Yard explores multiple forms of death and mourning relating to the artist's personal experiences and the viscerality of Black life in the UK. In addition to literal explorations of death and mourning, the exhibition gestures towards psychological and philosophical types of death: ego death, social death, and the mourning associated with incarceration, martyrdom and near death experiences, through the mediums of painting, sound and sculptural installation. Dead Yard is accompanied by a library of books related to the themes of the exhibition, presented as a ritual display for visitors to engage with.
