In this multi-layered three-screen installation created by acclaimed film-maker John Akomfrah , The Unfinished Conversation examines the nature of the visual as triggered across an individual’s memory landscape. With particular reference to identity and race, the film presents academic Stuart Hall’s memories and personal archives, extracted and relocated in an imagined and different time to reflect on the questionable nature of memory itself.
The Unfinished Conversation premiered at Bluecoat as part of the Liverpool Biennial 2012, NAE are excited to present this work in May 2013!
