This new body of work will feature in Pier’s forthcoming exhibition at UpDown Gallery which  will open in June 2013. Dates to be confirmed.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue.

Piers Secunda travels to Jamaica to make a series of shot sculpture works. He interviews drug traffickers and their victims. With unprecedented access to Jamaica’s network of gang leaders and testimony from a veteran of the drug trade, Secunda’s film sheds light on a complex power struggle that lies at the heart of Jamaican society, whilst persuading the biggest traffickers to make some art with him.
