HELEN CAMMOCK — I DECIDED I WANT TO WALK

Now in its final week, Helen Cammock’s current London show I DECIDED I WANT TO WALK features her film They Call It Idlewild as well as a set of new screen prints and a calico banner.

Cammock explores social histories through film, photography, print, text, song and performance. She is motivated by her commitment to questioning mainstream historical narratives around Blackness, womanhood, wealth, power, poverty and vulnerability. Mining her own biography in addition to the histories of oppression and resistance, multiple and layered narratives reveal the cyclical construct of histories.*
