About

Exploring the many manifestations of the festival theme – Control, the work of LeiLei, (USA), Anouchka Renaud-Eck, (France),Tami Aftab, (UK), Juan Orrantia, (South Africa/Colombia) and Heather Agyepong, (UK) look at the struggle for control in the personal and political spheres.

Very contemporary ideas of self-control as expressed through health and well-being are explored in Tami Aftab’s visualisation her father’s illness, hydrocephalus, in The Dog’s in the Car; Lei Lei’s A Moment questions the hierarchy of the process of image production and ways of looking; Anouchka Renaud-Eck highlights the control exerted through traditional Indian marriages in Ardhanarishvara; Juan Orrantia’s Like Stains of Red Dirt uses vibrant colour to suggest the historical and political undercurrents of living in South African and Heather Agyepong focuses on the work of Aida Overton Walker, the celebrated African American vaudeville performer who challenged the rigid and problematic narratives of black performers in Wish You Were Here.
