Art, Music and Poetry collide in The Revival, a short film from Mike Rymer, produced by London based artist Iona Rowland and sponsored by Weekend Offender. The film sees Hammer & Tongue Slam champion Solomon.O.B perform a newly commissioned poem which addresses issues of gentrification and the displacement of artist communities. He speaks of London’s ‘walls being peeled away layer by layer as it ceases to be’, they, he says, are ‘squeezing us out, constricting artistic spaces until the veins of the city street run red with the remnants of artist arteries’.
