In Search of Four Horses – The Conversation with Keith Piper
About this event
Keith Piper’s new collaboration In Search of Four Horses begins...with you!
Revoluton Arts welcomes all 16-30 year olds from Luton to take part in the next stage of Keith Piper’s research which will form part of his new major solo exhibition Jet Black Futures.
Keith will be hosting an open conversation via zoom where participants can voice their ideas relating to the project. Keith is also interested in finding out what skills the young people of Luton have to offer and seeking out the young creative’s to engage and help to collaborate on particular parts of the project.
Keith is interested in hearing about people’s predictions about the future. As a child, he was dragged to Church and remembers being terrified by stories about the ‘Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse’. Historically, many people have tried to interpret this strange allegorical story in relationship to their own politics, world-view and predictions. This has left us with many stories, and each one of us can also speculate as to what our individual ‘Horsemen of the Apocalypse’ might be.
Keith is planning an ambitious ‘Multi Channel’ video installation entitled ‘In Search of the Four Horses’ and would like to work with young people from Luton through the Revoluton Arts Young People’s residency. In Search of the Four Horses will take the form of a four screen installation.
It will feature in Keith Piper’s major solo exhibition Jet Black Futures which will take place at The New Art Gallery Walsall from January to April 2022. It will then be shown the summer of 2022 in Luton.
Keith is a founder member of BLK Art Group, and in partnership with Revoluton Arts, Departure Lounge Contemporary Art, The New Art Gallery Walsall and Middlesex University London where Keith currently teaches Fine Art.
