For summer 2015, the Grundy Art Gallery presents a new commission: THE UNSPEAKABLE FREEDOM DEVICE, an experimental narrative film and multimedia sculptural installation by artist Jennet Thomas.

About

The film presents a kind of absurd fairy-tale, in which a strange mythical tribe surrounding the ‘Blue Lady’, based on a memory of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, holds sway. The tribe takes a fictional pilgrimage through a future-primitive world, where the difference between magic and technology is now forgotten. 

THE UNSPEAKABLE FREEDOM DEVICE establishes a fictional world with bizarre costumes and characters, creating a “Victorian Sci-Fi” aesthetic from Blackpool’s Winter Gardens - the final destination of the pilgrimage and the site of many of Thatcher’s most famous speeches at Party Conferences.
