David Blandy’s new video work Biter is an Artsadmin Jerwood Commission. It premiered at the Whitechapel Gallery’s Zilka Auditorium. A hip-hop fan since the early 90’s, the work examines how much hip-hop has entered the artist’s unconscious mind. Shot on location at The Freud Museum, Biter will ask questions about identity – how much of the artist’s self is hip-hop? 

Biter was also screened at the launch night of a three-day festival marking the centenary of the publication of Sigmund Freud’s Totem and Taboo at the Freud Museum London, 5-7 July 2013. With a short performance by Blandy.

An Artsadmin Jerwood Commission, with support from the Freud Museum.
