Sun Dial 51.3861°, 1.3520
18.00 - 21.00
Sun Dial by Shamica Ruddock is a two-part sound work initially conceived as part of Margate NOW 2021 Sunken Ecologies Festival. Expanding on an ongoing sonic cosmology, ‘Sun Dial’, considers a Sunken Gardens history as a long forgotten astronomical site, whilst taking inspiration from plant cycles and the garden’s surrounding environment.
Shamica Ruddock is a research responsive sound and moving image artist concerned with African-Caribbean folk storytelling practices, orality, African-centered time-space cosmologies, sound culture, hauntology and Black technopoetics. Sonic strategising and speculative world building are also important points of departure.

Hew Locke in conversation: African & Black Diasporic experiences
19.00 - 20.00
Hear from artists Hew Locke, Femi Dawkins, and Ebun Sodipo chaired by Joan Anim-Addo in an intergenerational conversation as they explore how their practices have been shaped by influences from the African and Black diaspora.
Tickets are required and available on a first come first serve basis from the ticket desk on the night.
Femi Dawkins is a London/Amsterdam based multi-disciplinary Jamaican artist, MFA candidate at Goldsmiths (Aug. 2022), first recipient of the Lisson Gallery scholarship (2022), Bloomberg New Contemporaries artist (2021) and awarded the Prince Bernhard Fund (2020) and Ford Fellowship. He received his BA/BS from Skidmore College and is an alumni of LaGuardia High School, NYC.
Ebun Sodipo makes work for those who will come after: the black trans people of the future. Her interdisciplinary practice narrates her construction of a black trans-feminine self after slavery and colonialism. Through a process of fragmentation, collage, and fabulation, she devises softer, other-wise ways of imagining and speaking about the body, desire, archives, and the past.
Joan Anim-Addo is Emeritus Professor and Director of the Centre for Caribbean and Diaspora Studies, Goldsmiths. A writer and scholar, her publications include histories, poetry, libretto, and critical writing. The UK’s first Black Professor of Literature, she is currently Editor of Blacklines.
