These jumpers come from ‘Take on The News’, a piece that invited local slam poets and rappers to battle one another with the text taken directly from the days newspapers. The performance first took place at Sluice Art Fair, London (2015), and was re-imagined for the solo exhibition ‘Tomorrow is Never Enough’ at Studio 17, Stavanger, Norway (2016).
