FR33DOM RD echoes the street sign that leads to Broadwater Farm, the estate which was the centre of the riots of 1985 - and in close proximity to the ones of 2011. In this show, we will experience Tottenham’s distinctive character, past and present, through handmade prints by RCA graduate Yasmine Dainelli, along with an animated short film directed by Maria Pia Fanigliulo for legendary Tottenham rapper Mike GLC’s track, Exodus.
By using the ancient practice of hand printed etchings cross-pollinated with animated digital media, the works on display are an uncompromising journey through the area over the years.
The opening night (20 July) is free to all and will see Mike GLC perform his new series of spoken word poems on a soundscape created by DJ SIMAO, interacting with live projected paintings by Dainelli.
FR33DOM RD is also a social initiative that seeks to boost talent and creativity amongst younger generations in the local community. We have worked closely with the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London to involve its students in the process.
