The King’s Cross Commissions (2013) consist of a series of films, physically installed to encourage the participant to walk along roads (lines of digression) as a direct challenge against the will of commercial and governmental institutions insistent that we follow the designated route, along their ‘line of desire’. In my work, the participant has to decide for themselves which line they are politically aligned. I mimic and tap into the same codes and practices used in the structures I am criticising. The art is in the intersubjective encounter between the participant and the people sited along and at the end of the lines of digression.
A series of films commissioned in order to examine the impact of gentrification.
It gave the opportunity for certain individuals from communities around king's cross to self-represent.
