Faith and How to Keep It continues British artist Rene Matić’s ongoing interrogation of ‘Britishness’, through an experimental long-form poem. Launching alongside Matić’s solo exhibition at South London Gallery, Faith and How to Keep It addresses themes of faith and family, chosen and otherwise.
Rene Matić (b. 1997, Peterborough) is an artist, writer and poet based in London. Their work brings together themes of post-blackness, glitch feminism and subcultural theory in a meeting place they describe as rude(ness) – to interrupt and exist in/between. Matić takes their departure point from dance and music movements such as Northern soul, Ska and 2-Tone, using them as sites to queer and re-imagine the intimacies between West Indian and white working-class culture in Britain.
