Coronation Anthem Number 1: The Royal Estate
Coronation Anthem Number 1: The Royal Estate. For some time I have been addressing issues of homelessness and personal vulnerability in my work. I have further developed this theme in this current work, where I explore the juxtaposition between homelessness and the waste of unused derelict housing. The piece also references the hypocrisy and incongruity of the fact that the gap between the rich and poor is increasing. The Coronation took place at the time when 'The Royal Estate' was being built; and the road names reflect this royal theme. In the video the irony is highlighted by the audio; the derelict housing estate is contrasted with the hope of bird song and the pomp and show of the Coronation.
