Take it to the corner

Sound installation

Production of an installation for Jumpers for Goalposts, a new football and culture festival at Printworks in August 2019. Later displayed at the Tate Exchange as part of, ‘Who are ya!?’.

Football flags have been an essential part of the material culture of football, from the grassroots to the professional game for over a hundred years. We embedded the sounds of grassroots football in ours: the sound of matches on village greens, on pitch rituals, to the distinctive on-pitch communication - get rid!, stick it in the mixer & studs brushing the grass.
