Life Is Interesting... When You're Furious

Radar presents Life Is Interesting... When You're Furious, a series of projects which mark the 40th anniversary of the wave of student protest movements that broke out in 1968, often dubbed as the 'year of the barricades'. The artists have either responded directly to the historical events of that year or have created work that further explores the theme of protest, political action and resistance.

Wed 28 – Sat 31 May 2008
Wed to Fri 12–4pm, Sat 10–4pm
Music Centre, Loughborough University

Liverpool-based artist Paul Rooney approaches the subject of historical memory. La Décision Doypack, a co-commission with Matt’s Gallery, features eight Loughborough University drama students in various theatrical tableaux, illustrating scenarios from a voice-over narrative. Shot in the University’s drama studio, the performers attempt to visualize a series of emotive scenes, such as the descriptions of the clamour of city streets during an uprising. These shots are deliberately inadequate to represent the story as it is told, and while they are often awkward and comical, they also posses a simplified poetic clarity
