PAN AFRICAN FLAGS FOR THE RELIC TRAVELLERS’ ALLIANCE, MOTION
5 - 27 September 2019 | Domino Houses Billboard, Bounds Green Road, N22 8YB
Larry’s Cypher Billboard poster work highlights African diasporic identity. The design of this work features 54 stars that represent the 54 countries of Africa. The colours green, black and red reflect its land, its people and the struggles the continent has endured, respectively, and the field of yellow gold represents a new day and prosperity. Larry has configured these Pan African colours into symbols and forms that are suggestive of various elements, in this instance, motion and the speed of darkness. Belonging to a series of flags, they culminate as Afrofuturistic icons moving towards unity and equilibrium.
The billboard artwork will be accompanied by a digital commission for online project space SKELF to be exhibited on http://www.skelf.org.uk/ between 17 July – 22 October 2019. Cypher BILLBOARD will host an evening of screenings of films from Larry’s RELIC TRAVELLER series on the billboard site on Thursday 19 September 2019.
