Two Films is a double bill of moving imageworks by Dan Guthrie presented at VOLT in a custom screening environment. Made against the backdrop of an ongoing conversation about representation in Guthrie’s hometown of Stroud, Coaley Peak (A Fragment) and black strangers look at archival traces of Black presences in Gloucestershire by taking a family photo and an eighteenth century burial listing as respective starting points.

Accompanying the exhibition is a newly commissioned text written by Siavash Minoukadeh, Acting in Whispers, which reflects on the eerie undertones in Guthrie’s practice as both product of rurality and method for creating space in absence.

Coaley Peak (A Fragment) was commissioned by Exeter Phoenix.
