The Separate System

Davies, Katie


Katie Davies
Academic Associate Lecturer - FET - CSCT


The Separate System was produced by veterans through workshops at HMP Liverpool and HMP Altcourse with artist Katie Davies. Taking the form of a single channel cinematic film, the piece investigates the distinct, yet interconnected, spaces of the military, custody and ‘civilian’ life. Exploring these spaces and the experiences within them through the notion of work, an everyday activity that unites these worlds and is familiar to us all, the film communicates what we, as a civilian audience, do not understand about the unique set of relations, actions and responsibilities held by the individuals within these spaces.
