He changed the game for Black British cinema, today he’s one of the most important artists in the country. Now, Sir John Akomfrah CBE RA is representing Britain at the Venice Biennale. Ahead of the exhibition, Akomfrah spoke to Plaster’s Harriet Lloyd-Smith about global movement, finding solace in cinema, and searching for Arcadia.

This special, limited-edition issue of Plaster celebrates Akomfrah’s commission for the British Pavilion at the 60th International Art Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia. The linen presentation box contains: an essay by Akomfrah’s long-time friend and collaborator, the BAFTA-winning film curator June Givanni; an interview with Akomfrah by Harriet Lloyd-Smith; original portraits by photographer Siam Coy and a fold-out poster featuring an exclusive still from Akomfrah’s film installation, Listening All Night To The Rain, now screening in the British Pavilion at the Venice Biennale. With creative direction by Constantine // Spence and design by Emma Ralph.

Special thanks to John Akomfrah; June Givanni; Burberry; Lisson Gallery, and The Box, Plymouth.
