"Everything Around Us Is Culture": Regeneration In Margate
"Everything Around Us Is Culture": Regeneration In Margate is an inquiry into the nebulous and politically charged term "culture-led regeneration". The decision to build a contemporary art gallery in Margate to rival those in St Ives and Bilbao has triggered both investment and controversy. Using still images and sound, the work explores what this investment in culture means for Margate. The photographs seek "evidence" of culture-led regeneration in the landscape, while the audio - a mixture of interviews and ambient sound - reveals the conflicting responses from the people living and working there.
