Rebecca Lennon, House of Wolf, 2020,
REBECCA LENNON works across media including video, text, performance, sound and music to think about and play with the shapes and rhythms of voice and memory. She brings weight to words, to the power of speech, to the power of repetition – abstracting, making surreal – bringing us back to the concrete and physical.
House of Wolf collages words from the names of shops and pubs in Essex Road and nearby Upper Street, with shots of surface cracks, statues, letting agency signs, hoardings and Christmas trees. Through poetic composition the film explores the way our streets and their architecture, our social fabric and rituals, attempt to own and contain the wild.
