Within an environment of burnt walls with images connecting big finance with war the artists kennardphillipps construct images in a performance that uses the sounds of war, big industry; explosions of open caste mining, rapid fire artillery, and the sounds of resistance in everyday street life. They make an intervention in their own artists’ talk cutting from a formal talk about their work in response to the invasion of Iraq and British anti-war protest into a demonstration of action.

“ We tear at the serried ranks of share price listings in newspapers to reveal the victims of traded profit. We tear up the pages of our mediated experience and reveal the struggle going on underneath. This is a work of disrespect to the way things are.”
