Five Acts is a new commission by Spike Island studio holder Young In Hong. Exploring lesser-known histories through photographic archives, the exhibition focuses on the history of women’s labour in Korea.

Central to the commission is an embroidered tapestry that depicts women workers’ protests in Korea throughout the twentieth century and up to the present day. Inspired by the Bayeux Tapestry — an 11th century embroidered cloth depicting the events leading up to the Norman conquest of England in 1066 — Hong’s version includes reinterpretations of photographs depicting women’s struggles for better working conditions.

Images from the tapestry will also be reinterpreted in a series of performances and an original musical score.
