Jeremy Nedd & Impilo Mapantsula – How a falling star lit up the purple sky…

In “How a falling star lit up the purple sky; A Western Cover a.k.a. a Southern… (working title)” the artists of Impilo Mapantsula and Jeremy Nedd collaborate once more to explore “The Western.” Through the prism of Pantsula’s rich culture we will explore how this cinematic genre’s long list of stereotypical themes and tropes managed to propagate a collective imagination around the concepts of the hero, the other and the land.

 

By taking a look back historically at what The Western was, fabulating what The Western could have been and speculating what The Western can be, we will reimagine The Western…

 

The Western as a form… The Western as a limitation. The Western as a potentiality. The Western as an archetype. The old West as a stereotype. The old West as a haunting spectre. The West as a presence. The West as an absence. The South as a landscape. The South as an ecology. The South as a future…

 

A dynamic visual poem that proposes shifts to the paradigm, rearranges the idea of archetype and hopefully invites a reevaluation of the psychic and terrestrial spaces which “The Western”, “The old West”, “The West” and “The South” occupy.
