Earthly Accomplice at Crossness Pumping Station

Felix Taylor & Imani Mason Jordan


Part of Beneath the Pavement, the Marshes

An experimental performance by artist and composer, Felix Taylor, & writer Imani Mason Jordan, connecting research about Bexley's marshlands with wider narratives about blackness and ecological disaster.

A new version of Earthly Accomplice by artist & composer felix taylor, together with writer, artist & curator Imani Mason Jordan, is being performed right now at Crossness Pumping Station, & we feel very privileged to be witnessing this moving event within the incredible surroundings of a Grade-1 listed Victorian heritage site dubbed the "Cathedral of Sewage".

This performance marks the culmination of Felix's 6-month residency at Crossness Marshes & is informed by their research into acoustic ecology & forced displacement within the context of Bexley’s complex marshland, as well as connecting to wider narratives about blackness, materiality & ecological disaster in the afterlives of transatlantic enslavement.

A film & audio recording of the performance will be released in early 2024 - so stay tuned!

Huge thanks to Crossness Pumping Station for the support.

Earthly Accomplice is part of beneath the pavement, the marshes, a new creative programme bringing artists, activists and ecologists together with local environmental and community groups working in north Bexley, to explore the ground beneath our feet. 👣
