Lighting design for Ashanti Harris, Zephyr Liddell and Patricia Panther’s Jumbies at Glasgow International festival

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 space of layered fictions, alternate realities, apparitions and re-presentations.

The project was presented as a 360 work, and includes a publication produced in collaboration with independent Glasgow curators, Panel.
