To Repel Ghosts

1996, 21:43 min, color, sound

Asher documented the funeral procession of Joshua Compston, former owner of the Factual Nonsense Gallery in London. Compston died at the age of twenty-five from a combination of drink and drugs after attending the opening of a retrospective exhibition by Jean-Michel Basquiat. Many of the British art world's elite turned out for the event: Gilbert & George photographed the procession, artists Gavin Turk and Gary Hume decorated the coffin, the gallerist Jay Jopling was one of the pall bearers.
