The Second Act

THE SECOND ACT presents a solo exhibition of new paintings, ceramics, textiles, audio and moving image works by Jamie Holman, expressing the current and historic expression of governance and state violence across industry, working class people and protests.

Holmans ‘Destriers’ series locates governance and state violence in both public and domestic spaces, exploring working class protest, crowd theory and police control strategies, as part of an English heritage that first appears in the Bayeux Tapestry.

Holman identifies subjugation by horseback as a key visual element of the tapestry, and as the beginning of an unbroken chronology of equestrian governance, that persists to this day.
