THE VERY VERY END

George Barge

2013
6'10"

THE VERY VERY END by George Barber describes a holiday resort where tourists and holiday makers become preoccupied with computer animations and dance music, while they wait for a nuclear radiation cloud to reach them.  The work refers to Nevil Shute’s novel, On the Beach in which Shute depicts a haunting picture of what it is like to wait for a radiation cloud to reach you from a faraway conflict.  Nuclear war was a common preoccupation of the 1960’s and 1980s as opposed to the present day where we regard it as more of an outside possibility.  Yet the possession of these weapons is still on the rise and many regimes that already hold them are far from predictable.

A Part of Me

Carl Callam

1998
20'33"

A Part of Me by Carl Callam was made in 1988 by a final year student at the University of Westminster. In this work, a young British black man observes how his white foster family and his biological Jamaican mother behave when questioned about the cultural and racial complexities of his life. Interviewing his foster mother and aunt in person, and his biological mother on the phone, the artist upsets the delicate propriety of these relationships, in both cases unveiling unspoken intentions and decisions that have shaped his life.
