Dead Yard, a solo exhibition by R.I.P. Germain, curated by Languid Hands, was on at London’s Cubitt Gallery, running September 3 to November 1.
With found materials, sculpture, a reading library of radical Black writers, and a series of public responses including radio programmes with Ashley Holmes, the show is a personal reflection on mourning, grief and community. As noted in the press release: “Audiences are invited to engage with the works, which pay respect to Caribbean mourning rituals: an altar of objects to ponder; perhaps a game of dominos; a library of radical literature from which to learn and question.”**
