This work was part of the Deptford X festival 2018. A deconstructed ‘dwelling’ was installed 200 meters from a warehouse that was home for 18 months between 2015 and 2017. The kitchen was a converted gents toilet, there was a gas leak and water cascaded through the roof whenever it rained.
We think one of the water pipes might have been made of lead.
London’s untenable housing situation is satirised through a series of To Let notices that parody American Real Estate signage featuring images of the artists previous residences. It’s important to approach adversity with humour.
As they say, if you don’t laugh, you’ll cry.
But you’ll probably still cry anyway.
