The Jumbies 360° video is best accessed via a mobile phone or tablet with headphones
Jumbies is a collaborative ‘group-show-as-performance’ which weaves together the practices of visual artist Ashanti Harris, textile designer Zephyr Liddell, and sound artist Patricia Panther. Each artist has produced work in response to Jacques Derrida’s concept of ‘hauntology’, an interrogation of the ways in which people, places and things are ‘haunted’ by histories which are simultaneously neither present nor absent. Drawing from this concept, Jumbies is an exploration of the visible and the invisible across intersecting art forms and artistic practices. Taking its title from the jumbie – a Caribbean colloquial for ghost – the project combines dance, sound, and printed textiles to create a performative space of layered fictions, alternate realities, apparitions and re-presentations.
The Jumbies performances were filmed at The Pyramid at Anderston community centre in Glasgow and are presented as a 360° video work. This is accompanied by workshops for teenagers in Anderston and a printed publication which brings together new writing and illustration by Harris, Liddell and Panther alongside commissioned texts by Raisa Kabir, Marie O’Connor and Ranjana Thapalyal, which further unravel and reveal the ideas and practices within Jumbies.
