Street Art Installations

My curatorial practice and studio practice have combined for these site specific works that engage with some interesting areas I came across in Margate. My research concerns the removal and response of artworks from the gallery space to the public realm. Most of the sights selected are static, crumbling or have been used as dumpsites. These works are intentionally underwhelming and small in stage and presence. A lot of the work materials have been extracted from their original locations and altered in some form and returned.

I am also working on a series of zines and mapping systems of temporal installations in Margate. A zine documenting found objects around Margate will be the basis of this research.
