Lava La Rue 'Magpie' by Milo Blake
Milo Blake creates an impressionistic celebration of London sub-cultures and a symbolic take on London history in his video for west London rapper, and NiNE8 COLLECTIVE founder Lava La Rue - set in a London Tube carriage.
Blake was inspired by the photography of Bob Mazzer, who chronicled late night journeys on the Tube in the 80s, collected in his book Underground. But he also particularly celebrates the London punk scene from a Black perspective.
The counter-balance on this intriguing Tube journey, populated by Lava and her crew of innovators is the the fat cat developer with his model building (and a chilling reference to Grenfell), the demo placards against oppression.
"This journey finishes with a landing on the Magpie, a personification of the culmination of this history," Blake explains. "What the current crop of subcultures look like and how they might look in the future."
