Johannah Latchem

It was lovely to catch up with artist and researcher Dr Johannah Latchem again today as she discussed her works as part of a webinar entitled “The Art of Justice: Reconfiguring the Courtroom Object” within the Faculty of Law of University of Oxford.

A few years back we had a great time exploring the maritime history of the Newcastle quayside for her work ‘Kiss The Wooden Lady’ (2017). These recordings featured local (North East) Folk group The Teacups delivering some haunting versions of local songs based largely around the Press Gangs. I assisted the editing of Johannah’s work, ‘No Whole Truths’ (2018) for exhibition at Vane Gallery too. Fond memories to be had during this extended lockdown.
