No Place To Hide
10th January - 25th February 2013
‘Walking around the Peckham area, I noticed plenty of objects left on the street. I used a disposable camera to shoot pictures of these items which show a facet of Peckham’s identity. I crossed the neighborhood collecting images of abandoned objects. They are evidence of the neighborhood’s movement. The French writer George Perec would have called these facts “Infra-ordinaire”. The title No place to hide came out of a book lying beside a bin on Queen’s Road.’

Inspired by architectural essays, travelogues or science fiction novels, her art research investigates city fringes and landscape borders. She is interested in empty spaces where the passage of inhabitants is visible. She crosses suburban areas, no-man’s land or the edges of cities, collecting pictures of these landscapes.
