Languid Hands will curate five major new commissions of UK-based Black artists of Caribbean descent: R.I.P. Germain, Shenece Oretha, Ajamu X, Camara Taylor and Zinzi Minott.

The inaugural exhibition, R.I.P. Germain’s Dead Yard, opens to the public on Thursday 3rd September 2020: 

Luton-based artist R.I.P. Germain’s solo exhibition Dead Yard explores multiple forms of death and mourning relating to the artist's personal experiences and the viscerality of Black life in the UK. In addition to literal explorations of death and mourning, the exhibition gestures towards psychological and philosophical types of death: ego death, social death, and the mourning associated with incarceration, martyrdom and near death experiences, through the mediums of painting, sound and sculptural installation. Dead Yard is accompanied by a library of books related to the themes of the exhibition, presented as a ritual display for visitors to engage with.
