Still from Junkanoo Talk (2017), Rhea Storr
(11:36 minutes) Selected by Whitechapel Gallery, London
The imagery in Storr’s film unfolds like a language without words.
Junkanoo is a carnival of the Bahamas; vivid shots of festival fringed paper
costumes are accompanied by sighs and clicks, sounds made on the body
to the beats of Bahmian Rake ‘n’ Scrape. The work is part of British-Bahamian
artist Rhea Storr’s investigations in how to represent cultures on film.
