Film – Mac Collins

It’s an opportunity for discussion and these things can also become a vessel for that kind of conversation.

Mac Collins

In The Radical Act of Respect, furniture designer Mac Collins reflects on what it’s like to visit and see Harewood House and the Caribbean communities that are linked to it.

As someone with dual heritage – half-Jamaican and half-English – ‘it’s not ridiculous to think that my own family, and my own direct lineage, may have been linked to the family here’.

As part of his exhibit for the Harewood Biennial, he will reflect the Caribbean communities of his home town in Nottingham against the backdrop of Edwin Lascelles, who amassed the fortune to build Harewood House from the sugar trade and the enslavement of African people.
