It was made during, or to perform at, diisonance, an exhibition of artworks by Steve Ryan & paul hawkins in June 2017 at Bank Street Arts, Sheffield. diisonanceis a collaboration, part of a jigsaw, the genesis of which is shared experiences; Steve & paul met in the early 90’s squatting in Claremont Road, east London at the height of anti-road protests, poll-tax riots & dissent. They’ve tried to piece together the past from the future, making sense of the ghosts that stay with them & the shared feelings of confusion & love for their entwined topics; politicised, faltering, broken & rebuilt many times over. diisonance began as a response to Place Waste Dissent (Influx Press 2015) by paul hawkins.
