Phoenix City 2021, 2018-21

Duncan Whitley

Phoenix City 2021 is a moving-image work which combines documentary and speculative fiction to look at Coventry in the process of UK City of Culture. It was commissioned by Coventry Biennial for the third edition of Coventry Biennial: HYPER-POSSIBLE.

Phoenix City 2021 examines Coventry’s relationship to the image of the phoenix - stemming from Donald Gibson’s and Basil Spence’s use of the mythical bird as symbol to represent their respective town-planning and cathedral proposals for Coventry realised in the 1950’s – and the hypothesis that UK City of Culture is conceived in as the city’s next phoenix moment.
