THE VILLAGE

ARTIST STATEMENT

 

As the city focuses on the idea of community, the village starts to fragment. Its boundaries become blurred by the influences of infrastructure, technology and expansion. The work explores the myths created by popular picture postcard portrayals of the English village. The accompanying text refers to personal narratives, a combination of overheard conversations and personal experiences.

BIOGRAPHY

 

Through my work I explore the real and the imaginery and the gap between subject and object in an attempt to better understand the links between our past, present and future. Combining photography with the written word I am able to weave the past narratives into the fabric of present places, casting old social and political understandings in a contemporary light.

As it develops my work becomes a documentary of our time, phrased in the context of our origins and our future. Drawing upon personal experiences and observations, I pull together strands and connections between my work and the greater socio-political arena.
