On Remembrance Sunday, 11th November 2018, audio visual collective formed of COMPULSORY’s Taz Tron Delix, artist and poet Jack Miguel and electronic musician and sound artist Josh Grey-Jung, will present immersive installation, ‘The Turning of the Leaves’, at the Union Chapel, London.
The Turning of the Leaves is a meditation on the subject of masculinity with reference to the First World War and the phenomenon of intergenerational trauma. It's named after a ceremony that takes place in Manchester Cathedral, in which a page is turned in the Book of Remembrance on alternate Wednesdays.
Drawing on research, interviews and participation in men’s groups and influenced by the work of Carl Jung, Ted Hughes and the many voices of Kendrick Lamar, the installation is concerned with the challenges facing men today amidst inherited narratives of power, violence and invulnerability.
Written and directed by artist and poet Jack Miguel, in collaboration with award winning filmmaker Taz Tron Delix and electronic musician and sound artist Josh Grey-Jung, long form lyrical text is brought to life through multi-screen video projection and a dynamic score produced in surround sound. The outcome is a complex, original and compelling vision of the human psyche.
The project is supported by Union Chapel, Kodak Film & COMPULSORY
Free to attend, no tickets needed.
