The Medieval-City One group exhibition at Leicester’s Two Queens, opened June 17 and is running to September 2.
The show features newly-commissioned video and installation works by Larry Achiampong & David Blandy, Ashley Holmes, Georgia Horgan, Pil and Galia Kollectiv and Medieval Helpdesk (Lara Eggleton & David Steans) that explore, “the constructs of bureaucracy, colonialism, national identity, immigration, ethnicity, posthumanism, the gendered body, and tourism.”
The exhibition is also part of a series of events that studies the idea of the ‘Medieval’ in relation to the future and takes its title from Judge Dredd’s Mega City One. The programme aims to create a space to open up discussions around the middle ages in popular culture, and as a space to explore the ‘between’ of what was and what comes next.**
