year I was sponsored by Leeds City Museum to do a performance ‘JAH Fire
Burning ‘ at the Seven Arts Centre that used the museum’s artefacts to
tell the story of the Rastafarian Community in Leeds. I was the
executive producer alongside David Hamilton Artistic director &
dancer. Performing also was Royal Blood, Chris Campbell, Khadijah
Ibrahiim and Supa.
The performance was filmed and will be screened at my next
exhibition at the Leeds Museum. This exhibition forms part of Faith in
the City Exhibition. I will also have a selection of my digital images
on display with the museums artefacts, which were used in the show.
This will open on 2nd March 09.
