Fifth Quarter: Derek Jarman, Keith Collins & Dungeness brings together collaborators, friends, contemporary artists, writers, musicians, and curators to respond to the influence and legacy of Jarman and his late partner Collins.
Drawing inspiration from the captivating landscape of Dungeness and Romney Marsh alongside Jarman’s expansive body of work, the 112-page book gathers contributions and reflections from the past and present, cultivating a merger of history and memory, which explores the deep bonds between art and nature.
Using archive photography, film stills, commissioned writings, and new artworks, Fifth Quarter assembles a chorus of voices, mirroring Jarman’s collaborations with Collins and his wider circle of friends and colleagues, while locating collective practice as a central theme within Jarman’s polymathic work and life.
