LOST PROPERTY 2071, 2017 | household dust, labels | 1200 x 750 x 150 mm approx
A residual residency at London Bridge Station with Beyond Platform 7 | 23 – 27 September 2017 | In acknowledgement of George Orwell’s connection with the London Bridge area and in homage to his dystopian masterpiece, Nineteen Eighty Four (the title of which is an inversion of the year in which he wrote it) I created, for my residency at London Bridge Station, Lost Property 2071 (an inversion of the year 2017). It imagines an inverted future, where, instead of acquiring status through personal property and possessions, it is garnered through want for nothing. Attachments are thus here relegated to the dust heaps of history.
