A Nightmare On BAME Street, 2018

Eastside Projects, Birmingham, England

 

Equally inspired by Rockport shoes and Film Noir A Nightmare on BAME Street is an urban tableau-vivant set in a skewed version of Birmingham AKA ‘Bubble Town’, in the area where I grew up. In an imagined outdoor cinema, loitering characters envision excessive scenes in thought bubbles, which also carry double entendres from the black American verbal duelling game known as “The Dozens”. Fake recognise fake.
