Untitled A to C from the series Slide Re-enactment ( Helen Cammock)
Title: Untitled A to C from the series Slide Re-enactment
Artist: Helen Cammock
Date of Work: 2017
Medium: print: screenprint
Dimensions: h1020 x w 720 mm
Caption: In three evocative assemblages of web-found images overlaid with simple texts Cammock invites us to consider the words - `Slide`, `Landslip` and the phrase `Waiting for the Re-enactment`. The images behind the text are of contemporary politicians, Barack Obama, Theresa May, and Boris Johnson set beside those of Shirley Chisholm, the extraordinary American politician and activist who, in 1972, famously said `The next time a woman of whatever color, or a dark-skinned person of whatever sex aspires to be president, the way should be a little smoother because I helped pave it`.
