Description

Which parts of our identity are our own and which parts are dictated to us? The artist Ilona Sagar was invited to work with firstsite's Y.A.K. (Young Art Kommunity) in October 2013, they worked together to create two films 'Fitting Out of Place & Talk Don't Rant', the two films can be watched individually or together. The project focuses on methods to build up or break down narrative within film. Sessions were structured around sounds, image and text techniques used for film of performance. Y.A.K. have used film as a research tool and platform for debate. The young people have become increasingly interested in the Anti-Social Behavior Act and the private and public security services which patrol areas of Colchester town centre. The group actively explored the politics surrounding the ways in which these spaces they use are monitored, owned and controlled. Y.A.K. is part of Circuit, led by Tate and funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
