Wilson, Jane and Wilson, Louise, 2009, Show, Exhibition or Event, Spiteful of Dream

Abstract or Description:

"Spiteful of Dream" is a video installation based on the form of an exploded cube, and was a direct response to the industry and architecture in the city. The exhibition was a multi screened video installation, which contrasted the technically advanced factory environments with the institutionalized interiors in the drop in center, revealing the paucity of resources allocated to refugees. The soundtrack was interviews with refugees and asylum seekers who we met and interviewed at the center.
Derby was a city at the heart of 19th century industrial revolution. The longstanding industries in Derby, Rolls Royce and Bombardier, are companies engaged in producing equipment for the mass movement of people via air and rail, yet it is also one of the biggest processing centers for asylum seekers and refugees.
