NEW TO H ISSUE
Hallowed is a short film directed by Chris Turner (Hungry Man Productions / Favourite Colour: Black), based on Dante’s Inferno and featuring a bespoke remix of Eye Robot by Plaid.
This film was commissioned by (and features dancers from) English National Ballet, and appears in ‘H’ ISSUE which is accompanied with Heavenly Creatures by photographer Charl Marais.
George Williamson (of the English National Ballet) said: “Through this work I wanted to reach out to the wider creative community and demonstrate what I’m doing. This video involved a huge range of creatives and that’s also what we want to be doing at English National Ballet; collaborating and absorbing the art forms that exist around us, fusing them with our work and building new traditions showing ballets’ ability to provoke feeling and relevance alongside other art forms. We are willing to give artists the platform to voice their own work. If people like this video and think they have something to say, they should get in touch with us and let’s make it happen!”
Exploratory photographer Matilda Temperley is showcasing the first instalment of her intriguing, and sometimes disturbing human zoo series. ‘Human Zoo: London’ which launches at The Wilmotte Gallery, London W10, this evening, 15th May.
Matilda is known for her stylised portraiture of marginalised societies. At times confrontational, her work is a empathetic nod to the self expression of her subjects and commands the immediate attention of the viewer.
This series of works references human zoos throughout history, from the ethnographic displays of the 1500s to modern-day freak shows. The London series showcases the individuality of the capital’s diverse inhabitants – from transgender body modification artists to contortionists – whilst introducing their stories and inspirations.
“I have always admired the bravery of the mavericks who are comfortable to sit outside society’s norms. This exhibition is as much about the viewer’s reaction to the subjects as it is about the subjects themselves.”
