Ethical knowledge, sacred spaces, forgotten histories and challenging
Furtherfield is pleased to present the excellent cross cultural project
DISCLOSURE: Old Words Made New'. We have collaborated with Medieval
Studies Graduate Students from King's College London, and artist Erica
Scourti to reversion a contemporary representation on the subject of
medieval social lives, based on the theme of ‘ethical knowledge’ through
Old English. With a combination of works in the Finsbury Park
surroundings, sound installations, collaborative writing, and performance.
The question posed to the King's College students was "If we existed in
a contemporary society where the Internet could no longer be trusted
because of systems of networked surveillance, what would be the
different ways in which we could communicate?"
The project is part of Colm Cille’s Spiral project, a collaboration
between Difference Exchange, King's College London and Furtherfield, and
takes place alongside a commission by artist Erica Scourti. It relates
to a series of contemporary art and literature commissions and dialogues
rethinking the legacy of 6th Century Irish monk Colm Cille, or St
Columba, that unfolds across Ireland and the UK, starting and ending in
Derry-Londonderry for City of Culture 2013. Kings College Students
taking part are: Carl Kears, Kathryn Maude, Hana Videen, Victoria
Walker, Rebecca Hardie, Francesca Allfrey.
