We are delighted to replay a talk by Andrew Jackson where he discussed his work, ‘From A Small Island’ and why he is producing two further chapters to complete a trilogy of works exploring the legacy of migration from the Caribbean to the UK.
This is a recording of an online live lecture originally streamed for Windrush Day. It will be streamed on our Youtube channel on 14th October from 2pm.
You can go to the Youtube link now to set a reminder for when it goes live.
Andrew Jackson is based in Montreal, Canada and is a photographer, and lecturer in photography, at London College of Communication and on the advisory panel of The Photo Ethics Centre.
His works interrogate notions of place, belonging and selfhood, within intimate and personal interventions and are held in the United Kingdom Government Art Collection. Besides other public and private collections of art. These interventions focus on the themes of migration, displacement, and collective memory, but also seek to question and challenge how photography has traditionally narrated and represented stories of the diaspora.
As the art historian Professor Eddie Chambers has written, “British life has had the disastrous effect of immigrants not being routinely regarded as sensitive human beings, but being instead cast as vexatious problems. Jackson’s work restores humanity to people from whom this critical characteristic has been routinely withheld or withdrawn. And in restoring humanity, a thousand stories of life can be, and are, told.”
