Kadeem Oak, 'Effra Creek! Effra Wash! Effra Splash! (Pumping Edition)', 2022
Offset Lithographic Print
38 x 25 cm
Edition of 100, signed and numbered
This lithograph print was launched to coincide with the artist's film Effra Creek! Effra Wash! Effra Splash! which was commissioned by the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London as part of their annual Image Behaviour festival, a convening dedicated to new experiments in artist's moving image. The work screened at the ICA Theatre on the 19th March 2022 with support by Dr. Martens. The work reflects upon the River Effra, a lost south-London tributary of the Thames. The project examines the cultural and sonic ecology of the river’s course as it runs underground from Norwood, through Brixton to Vauxhall exploring Afro-Caribbean histories and themes of industry, community, landscape and memory. The words Creek, Wash and Splash featured in this edition denote the various names of the river while the diagram of a traditional Jamaican sound system makes reference to Brixton's musical heritage, the Windrush generation, dub cultural and underground vibrations. Much of the river Effra is now subsumed into London’s Victorian sewer system of which culminates at Crossness Pumping Station as photographed in this edition.
