Poor old horse
Digital or visual media
Overall, S. 2023. Poor old horse.
A short creative film responding to the East Kent custom of Hoodening, using site-specific footage, music and spoken word. The film draws on a range of creative practice research methods, including walking with text and objects, ambulant writing and collaborative experimentation with musicians and performers. Spoken word text in the film also draws on and responds written sources from Canterbury-based amateur historian Percy Maylam (The Hooden Horse 1909) and the transcript of an interview with an early 20th century hoodener (Tom West 1980).
The film was created as part of the project Celebrating the Kentish Hooden Horse, in conjunction with a major regional exhibition at Maidstone Museum, ‘Animal Guising and the Kentish Hooden Horse’(February-June 2023), where the film was shown.
