The text featured on this patch, ‘Resist and Play’, comes from the title of Rhea Storr’s 2018-19 Fungus Press commission. Storr’s poster series stemmed from 16mm footage that the artist filmed of Leeds West Indian Carnival. The works considered carnival as a site of performance and resistance, as well as raising various questions regarding erasure, the power dynamics of spectatorship, black bodies in rural spaces, and contemporary political issues, such as the deportation of members of the Wind Rush Generation.
