Helen Cammock will present a new video work developed from a recent artist residency in Barbados. Using an encounter between an artist and a worker from one of the island’s remaining sugar factories as a starting point, a fragmented spoken, sung or written narrative around labour and cultural transference, from East London to the Caribbean and back, will develop creating a disjunct between what is seen and what is heard.
