Alison Marchant presents a collection of found archival photographs dating back to the 1970s. They depict the interiors of dilapidated stately homes and country cottages. The aged, mottled surface of the photographs echoes the walls and ceilings of the interiors. The dressing table has lost its mirror image, its reflection. These derelict buildings of decaying grander, symbols of inherited prosperity in ruins, also exist as a metaphor for homelessness, swatting and sleeping rough.
