Deadline: 01/10/2021 | Published: 17/09/2021 | Region: West Midlands | Country: United Kingdom | Jaz Morrison
IN LOVING MEMORY OF ERROL is a zine, stylised as a funeral pamphlet, to celebrate the lives of those on the Ship Called Jesus (Piper, 1991). We are looking for submissions around the 'Black British' identity and how it intersects with 'Christianity' across history.
IN LOVING MEMORY OF ERROL (ILMO ERROL) is a zine, stylised as a funeral pamphlet, to celebrate the lives of those on the Ship Called Jesus (Piper, 1991). Errol is a name associated with Antillean men, and It means ‘nobleman’, ‘warrior’, or ‘prince’.
ILMO ERROL represents the journey of Black peoples across water over time, both in the literal sense (e.g. Transatlantic Slave Trade; Migration) and in the figurative sense (e.g. travelling across ‘firmaments’ of sky and water; through time and space). This zine is being created in response to Keith Piper's 1991 exhibition and essay called 'A Ship Called Jesus', as well as Jaz Morrison's 'Firmament', performed at IKON Gallery's 2021 Migrant Festival in August.
We would like you to respond to this brief in any of the following ways:
- An essay, study, or short story (no more than 2000 words, or a chapter)
- A poem
- Your artwork (as long as it can be printed into/onto a zine)
- A manifesto
- Screenshots and digital collages
- A short story
- A moodboard
- A letter to ______
And anything else that can be printed onto/into a zine. The deadline for this opportunity is Friday 1st October 2021.
This zine is being curated by Jaz Morrison.
