Leon Clowes

Leon Clowes is “an older queer, white, working-class artist in recovery from abuses and addictions. I successfully manage lifelong mental health issues, and this lived experience informs my artwork.

'3 Voice Pieces from Days Of Future Past' Is a three part long form radio collage piece

The first ('C'est La Vie') and the last ('Days of Future Past') detail Leon’s experiences growing up gay in rural Staffordshire during the AIDS crisis of the 1980s. The middle piece ('These are Unprecedented Times') is a response to the often over repeated phrase in the media at the start of the pandemic.
