Entry Summary:
Currently the art world feels far away from the world of everyday people. It’s full of intellectual superiority, incomprehensible language and ‘Quiet Please’. It just doesn’t feel relevant. This campaign was designed to bring the real world and the art world together.The Tate Britain collection houses a range of art, much of which feels very inaccessible. But the stories behind that art are as powerful and relevant today as they have ever been. So instead of showing the art, we would tell these stories. Gin Lane tells the tale behind Hogarth’s etching, of a woman’s haunting struggle with alcoholism.
We hear Imelda Staunton, the BAFTA award winning actress, recount the story behind Hogarth’s Gin Lane, inspired by Judith Defour, an alcoholic who murdered her own daughter for money to buy one more bottle of Gin.
Script In English:
FVO:My name is Judith and I’m an alcoholic.I think.I actually don’t know if I am?I mean, I drink – a lot – but so does everyone.I’ve never thought I’ve had a problem –But maybe I do.I just want to be able to have a drink without downing the bottle.Things I used to laugh at –Blacking out, throwing up in the street – they now scare me.I gave my 2 year old girl up for adoption.They gave her new clothes.I took her back,Strangled her.I killed her for her clothes.I sold them.Just for one more drink.” See ‘Gin Lane’ by Hogarth1751Inspired by Judith Defour,Free at Tate Britain.
