Elephant in the haunted castle
Leo The Last (2015)

This film and ceramic arts project was staged during my V&A Museum residency.
Leo The Last was directed by John Boorman in 1969. The story concerns an aristocratic landlord who moves into a slum area of Notting Hill and becomes radicalised by his oppressed Afro-Caribbean neighbours. It is the definitive film that resonates with the themes of my V&A residency: housing, architecture, film. The set design for the film used a road in North Kensington that was being emptied for slum clearance into Lancaster West estate. After a 35mm print screening of the film, nine residents from Silchester Estate came down to the V&A Museum and made clay houses based on the set design from the film which were displayed at the V&A from the 6-8th Feb 2015.
