Sholto Dobie

Mon 6 June — Fri 17 June 2016

Lucia Nimcova and Sholto Dobie have gathered an archive of photography, video and sound recordings, along western Ukraine’s borderlines.

As opposed to traditional documentary practices, the artists prefer to describe their work as a folk opera; existing somewhere between an ethnographic document and musical theatre.

Tall Tale seeks to capture official, private and hidden realities within communities that are excluded from the main historical narrative of the region. Through songs which describe ­in tragic, brutal and comic ways ­domestic abuse, murder, conflict, sex, love and hate, the artists want to show that mountain rap and vintage feminism; the alternative folklore of the region, is still alive and relevant, before it’s last inheritors disappear.
