Jehosephat is one film shown twice with two soundtracks. It is projected alternately on adjacent walls, the two loops accompanied by two different songs. The Valley of Jehosephat is a roots reggae track by Max Romeo from the late seventies – referring to a biblical valley of judgment. The other is Bryan Ferry’s In Your Mind (1977), which suggests a philosophical quest for personal resolution. The songs accompany footage of the Bloody Sunday Commemoration in Derry. The alternating soundtracks destabilise our reading of the work and force us to re-evaluate / question what it is we think we see, when we realise how the atmosphere is inflected by the different pieces of music.
