Soul of Fire – Jade de Montserrat

Soul of Fire comprises a film trilogy that centres the materiality and politics of charcoal. The films explore the connection between theory and practice, particularly thinking through Montserrat’s drawing and performance work with charcoal as a vehicle for considering the intersections of race, climate change, landscapes, and history.

Jade de Montserrat was the recipient of the Stuart Hall Foundation Scholarship supporting her PhD (via MPhil) at IBAR, UCLan, and the development of her work from her Black diasporic perspective in the North of England. Jade works through performance, drawing, painting, film, installation, sculpture, print and text.
