Studio 73 Gallery is proud to present Overstand (Postcolonial Sampler), a two-person exhibition featuring the work of established London-based artists Jaykoe and Neil Kenlock.
Jaykoe and Kenlock have created a dynamic series of collaborative works for the exhibition, which coincides with Black History Month. Jaykoe has sampled and transposed a variety of images of life in Brixton before, during and after the 1981 riot – including original photographs taken by Neil Kenlock in the 1970s – to create a series of mixed media screen prints.
When asked about his thoughts on this creative partnership, Kenlock says, “I am delighted to collaborate with Jaykoe on this exhibition because our works, although they are from different eras, tell important stories about the same community. Overstand is about the people, the struggle and their influence on society.”
The work forms part of Jaykoe’s research for his upcoming solo show, RADIX, which focuses on the UK riots in 2011.
