PJ Harvey and Seamus Murphy

A really haunting video for PJ Harvey's beautiful song 'Let England Shake'. A lot of the imagery is of an abandoned(?) fairground, cut with shots of Punch & Judy. Apparently it was filmed at a Fairground on Canvey Island - must visit! Here's a link to Seamus Murphy talking about the process of making the filmThe work reminds me a bit of An Entertainment - a video piece by Susan Hiller that I saw recently in her retrospective at the Tate.
