Kirsty Buchanan

 

Kirsty Buchanan's film O Death, Rock Asleep is an exploration into trivial moments and the macabre details in the tales of four different Tudor Queens, each of whom met a violent end.

 

 

Kirsty Buchanan's work utilises a jaunty aesthetic and a consideration for the thrill of homemade videos to sympathetically contemplate the reality (and legend) of each character’s tragic situation. Simultaneously encountering the human fascination with death and obsessive re-telling of stories.

 

 

The starting point for O Death, Rock Asleep was Buchanan's series of Headless Queen zines which are available at Mock Tudor and the Transition shop and online.
