Helen Cammock: I Will Keep My Soul

Text by Jordan Amirkhani, Andrea Andersson, Kristina Kay Robinson, Roshanak Kheshti. Interview by Courtney J. Martin. Afterword by Cameron Shaw.

Helen Cammock: I Will Keep My Soul

A gorgeous book object engaging New Orleans’ multilayered histories of race, art and politics, from the acclaimed Turner Prize winner

Convening polyphonous voices from past and present, I Will Keep My Soul is an orchestral layering of photography, historical documents, poetry and interviews, rooted in the history, geography and community of New Orleans. In this tactile artist's book, UK-based artist Helen Cammock (born 1970) traverses the city, rendering her observations and encounters into texts and images that reveal its invisible histories. These sequences are woven with correspondence and photographs from the Amistad Research Center that evince artist Elizabeth Catlett's struggle for agency and support during her 1976 commission to create a bronze monument to Louis Armstrong in Congo Square—a place laden with histories of both oppression and celebration. Cammock interlaces more archival materials—newspaper clippings, instructions for activists, a 19th-century book on Creole slave songs—to articulate the long struggle for civil rights. I Will Keep My Soul is a uniquely American story of art and activism, culture and capital, being and belonging.


PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Hyperallergic

Melissa Holbrook Pierson

I Will Keep My Soul gives representation to the rich cultural silt history has deposited in the Mississippi Delta, evoking the push-pull of natural and unnatural forces. The flowing musicality of its composition reminds the viewer of a truth as central as anyone can be about a kaleidoscope-like New Orleans: It has always kept moving, and always to its own tune.
