Event Details

The Separate System (2017) is a single channel cinematic film, investigating the distinct, yet interconnected, spaces of the military, custody and ‘civilian’ life. This new collaborative commission is produced by veterans through workshops at HMP Liverpool and HMP Altcourse with artist and Spike Island studio holder Katie Davies and FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology.)

Join us for a screening of The Separate System with an introduction by the artist Katie Davies.

The exact number of former Armed Forces personnel in prison in Britain is at present unknown and figures are widely contested, but it is believed that the number represents ‘a significant subset of the adult male prison population and by occupation, potentially the largest’ (Howard League for Penal Reform (2011) Report of the Inquiry into Former Armed Service Personnel in Prison). With a move to now better recognise and support veterans within the criminal justice system, what does this identification mean for the individuals themselves?

Organiser

Spike Island

Spike Island is an international centre for the development of contemporary art and design. Based in Bristol, UK, it is home to a gallery, café and working space for artists, designers and creative businesses. A vibrant hub for production, presentation and debate, we offer opportunities for audiences to engage directly with creative practices through participation and discussion.

Our vision is to position art as central to society, which we do in two ways: by offering a high quality, challenging programme of exhibitions and events; and by fostering a dynamic and critically engaged community of artists and designers. Spike Island collaborates with local and regional partners as well as with international institutions, museums and universities.
