Carmel Buckley @ ICA

6 December 2016 - 5 February 2017

This exhibition Sparrow Come Back Home shows representations of Sparrow’s records alongside an archive of printed material relating to his music, revealing the depth of calypso culture. Carmel Buckley and Mark Harris’s work consist of 180 ceramic tiles, each approximately the size of an LP, depicting the front and back of record covers from Sparrow’s entire career. The images comprise photo decals fired onto the tiles, fixing his music into a kind of permanent memorial.
The installation of tiles is accompanied by an archive of literature and photographs relating to calypso and Trinidadian social and political issues often addressed by these songs.
