Set against the backdrop of the current economic downturn, cuts, protests, riots, strikes and occupations diG.shaKe.riSe.andblEEed,myloVe. questions the potency of demonstration, revolt and sacrifice as an instrument for policy change.
Equipped with a torch, you are invited to embark upon a solitary journey through the hidden dark interior of the old Shoreditch train station. An ascension to a setting of ethereal photographic images of a snow white English landscape, enclosed in lead structures, suspended; audio fragments - political speeches, a rioting black bloc, OccupyLSX assemblies; light, mounds of earth, grit, bricks, tarmac and cement to Golgotha.
diG.shaKe.riSe.andblEEed,myloVe. - a project by London-based artist Eran Tsafrir, questions the potency of demonstration, riot, revolt and sacrifice as an instrument for policy change, against the backdrop of the current economic downturn, cuts, job losses, rise in university tuition fees, student and anti-cuts protests, riots, strikes and occupations.
The project is created within the ambit of conteXtism - a manifesto-driven initiative aimed at illuminating the interrelationships between art and the social, political, economic, religious, ethical and legal contexts in which it is made and displayed.
