Turning The Season
Thomas Zanon-Larcher & Jules Wright
In the summer of 2008 Thomas Zanon-Larcher (Photographer) and Jules Wright (Director) set out to make a work which captured the ‘English Season’. It’s a time of year when the English aristocracy and upper middle-class traditionally (since The Restoration in the17th Century) go out to play at horse racing, polo, cricket, car racing, picknicking and dining – as frequently as possible on strawberries and champagne. This spectacular summer historically heralded the autumn with a return to London and presentation of debutantes to the Queen, a tradition abandoned in the fifties. For the purposes of this take on Englishness, the co-authors constructed a relationship between a young married couple, Alice who suffers from bi-polar disorder and Alex, a successful lawyer. We watch them struggle to survive within the public world imposed by their class.
Turning The Season was staged as an installation at the Wapping Hydraulic Power Station, 21 November 2008 – 28 February 2009 and is the third book of a series. All work was shot on location, in public.
