Description

Preview: Wednesday 17 July 5-8pm

Dates: 18-27 July 2019

Johannah Latchem’s work addresses themes of law, punishment and power. It intervenes in the material culture of the courthouse to establish new rituals. Her art installations are sometimes installed in courtrooms and critique the symbolic materiality of law’s historical artefacts. Latchem creates new legal objects and explores their performative role in courtrooms, challenging the existing role of courthouse rituals, and exposing the need for new ways to convey revised messages to the public. Her current practice-led PhD focuses on the subject of courtrooms, maritime law and power. The exhibition continues until Saturday 27 July.
