Biography

Helen Cammock was born in 1970 in Staffordshire. She lives and works in Brighton and London. Cammock explores social histories through film, photography, print, text, song and performance. She is motivated by her commitment to questioning mainstream historical narratives around blackness, womanhood, wealth, power, poverty and vulnerability. Mining her own biography in addition to the histories of oppression and resistance, multiple and layered narratives, reveals the cyclical nature of histories. She was shortlisted for the 2019 Turner Prize and was awarded the prize along with the other three nominees.

Lewis Dalton Gilbert is a freelance curator and the creative director at A Vibe Called Tech, focusing on the creative strategy, execution, and art direction within the company. Following his BA Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art and Design, he went on to coordinate and produce exhibitions and projects for White Cube and Frieze. In 2016, he co-founded ROLE, a podcast created to discuss defining roles and strengthen communal bonds within underrepresented communities. ROLE now acts as an online forum seeking to achieve the same. Lewis is also one of Jenn Nkiru’s executive producers and is working with the artist on several upcoming projects.
