Graham Fagen: The Slave’s Lament
Performed by the Scottish Ensemble and reggae singer Ghetto Priest, artist Graham Fagen’s contemporary interpretation connects Scottish and Caribbean history through these seemingly disparate musical cultures. Presented across four screens, the result is both haunting and melancholy, yet common ground is found between Burns’ verse and Jamaican reggae.
Commissioned by Hospitalfield, Arbroath and exhibited at Scotland + Venice 2015, when Graham Fagen represented Scotland at the Venice Biennale.
