Anders Als die Andern (Different from the Others)

Following a short self-directed residency in Berlin (funded by ACE and The British Council, via the IADF scheme) working with The Schwules Museum and The Magnus Hirschfeld Gesellschaft, Jez is making a new series of work which uses the film; Anders Als die Andern (Berlin 1919) as a starting point to explore current LGBTQI+ oppression, reparative therapy and history. The work will be premiered at HOME Manchester, 12th January - 4th March 2018.

Magpies

A letter, neither sent, nor read by its intended recipient. Written with anger, confusion, betrayal, love, extreme sadness. The end of an affair, but not the end of the relationship. An outline, accidentally drawn for a future work.

Utilising text, whilst redacting the text itself. The few remaining words, still communicating the hurt and sorrow which hide behind the redacting lines of ink. Simultaneously personal / universal, secrecy / declaration, disguise / identification.

Magpies will be a collaboration with composer Michael Betteridge. Codifying language and text into sound, music, and visual response.

Magpies will have a preview showing in September 2017 at Birmingham School of Art, Jez's MA Final show.
