Conceived and produced by clothing brand Aries in collaboration with British artists Jeremy Deller and David Sims, Wiltshire Before Christ takes the form of an immersive exhibition, art book, limited-edition capsule collection and merchandise.

Shot at some of Britain’s key Neolithic sites including Stonehenge and Avesbury, it engages with mysticism, pagan symbolism, and a particularly British exploration of identity, time and place.

The exhibition features light boxes by David Sims, painted murals, artefacts from the Salisbury Museum, and a new film, created by Deller with a bespoke score composed by me.

First shown at 180 The Strand in collaboration with The Vinyl Factory. The exhibition will later tour to Milan in February, The Store X Berlin in March, before travelling to Tokyo and Florence.
