David Blandy presents a live collaborative immersive installation alongside an archive of his psycho-geographical research into the relationship between food production and weapon development.
Focusing on his current production towards his new film work The Edge of Forever, this project will debut in Towner’s new ground floor studios.
Blandy will investigate connections between specific sites, personal histories and geopolitical events to reflect on our place in the world, as Britain is caught between disaster capitalism and the climate crisis. These ideas will be tackled through the lens of his grandfather’s experiences interned in Japanese prisoner of war camps during the Second World War in Singapore and Taiwan, personal stories with shared histories.
The Edge of Forever will continue to be developed for a solo exhibition at John Hansard Gallery, Southampton in 2023.
This exhibition is supported by Arts Council England and The Elephant Trust.
