May’s ArtHouse Jersey Pop Up invites Jersey-born writer and photographer Will Lakeman to our HQ at Greve de Lecq Barracks. Will uses colour photography and image manipulation to tell unusual stories while exploring the subliminal landscape of his dreams and senses. His pop-up event in 2021 will showcase parts of a large project that reinterprets our fading memories of Jersey landmarks and the strange rituals conducted by people who cannot bear to leave the past behind.
The event is planned to feature interactive elements in the form of a game, as Will is also writing a role-playing game set in a fictional island that just happens to resemble Jersey. There will also be a sensory element to the event, evoking the smells and textures of our half-remembered past. The show will include some work produced in collaboration with artificial intelligence.
Open 10am – 5pm on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd May 2021.
