Times: All Day
The Lives We Lead
Wednesday 20 January – Sunday 21 February 2021
Bluecoat is honoured to present a new video from Kiara Mohamed. The Lives We Lead (2020) was filmed during the first lockdown and throughout summer 2020. It captures video calls between Kiara as he catches up with Black people, contrasting what was happening in their lives against global events. It captures moments of shared humanity, exploring the way Covid-19 has impacted on our lives and the effect of the global uprising of Black Lives Matter.
A series of photographs from the same project has also been acquired by the Art Collection of the University of Salford, having been commissioned by Open Eye Gallery, with images shown on a screen at Museum of Liverpool autumn 2020.
