They Burnt The Pages But Could Not Crack The Spine
Sound Installation at the Tate Exchange

This piece was commissioned to join the But We Are Still Here exhibition
at Tate Exchange which featured the photography of Heather Agyepong recreating
the image of Yaa Asantewaa. This installation was a two part piece; a workshop
with Stockwell Good Neighbours and a final performance on the closing day of the exhibition.
I painted a moveable wall with conductive paint loaded with extracts from the workshop
around the theme But We Are Still Here, looking at the legacy of false citizenry under
British imperialism for Black Caribbean people in the 1940s – up till now and the erasure
Black African and Caribbean history within the UK. The letters when touched triggered sound
which I used while I live looped and freestyled the post-it notes.
