Exile – a mind in Winter. Cedoux Kadima, Ricky Romain and Robert Golden have created a multi-genre exhibition of painting, photography, film and an accompanying sound scape. It’s a poetic fusion of different arts forms blended into a dramatic whole. It concerns the social and personal impact of alienation, torture and physical exile. The exhibition consists of 12 montages by Cedoux. They reveal the journey he took from being a working artist in London for 6 years to receiving a Home Office letter threatening deportation back to the Democratic Republic of Congo. Cedoux had fled the Congo after becoming a government target for teaching street children drawing and painting. From Robert Golden there are 12 composites of photographs and texts about different aspects of alienation. Included in the exhibition is also a 30 minute poetic documentary film by Robert Golden about alienation, exclusion, exile and evil. This will also be available on the web site. These lead to the painting by Ricky Romain, divided into 72 frames. They relate the story of 36 good people and their 36 substitutes who exist in the world to balance evil.
