Like a Burying of Treasure
These sculptures are designed to constitute an element of one's home. They are positioned so that they highlight a tension that exists in regard to a lack of affordable housing. The objects are stripped of their intended purpose and thus rendered unusable. This relates to the fact that there is a lack of affordable housing in London and instead land is bought up by the highest bidder and then transformed into a 'playground for the rich'. As communities are torn apart through this vicious cycle, the vast array of different cultures and communities that make up the city are being buried and replaced by a sea of faceless replacements.
