Overstand (Postcolonial Sampler), 2019 by Jaykoe
A project which led to a two-person exhibition featuring the work of Neil Kenlock and Jaykoe, curated by Christina Mitrentse and Jaykoe.
Kenlock and Jaykoe created a dynamic series of collaborative works for the exhibition, which coincided with Black History Month. Jaykoe sampled and transposed a variety of images of life in Brixton before, during and after the 1981 riot – including original photographs taken by Neil Kenlock in the 1970s – to create a series of mixed media screen prints. The work forms part of Jaykoe’s research for his upcoming solo project, RADIX, which focuses on the UK riots in 2011.
