Lambeth council has proposed the building of new public and private owned housing and the estate has been earmarked for demolition. The artist and resident Mark Aitken has working on the series for two years.
The photos are an exploration of how home as a repository of memory defines identity. We define our homes. Our homes define us. Exhibition is on the estate itself, at Peckham 24 (Photo London) in May 19th – 21st, http://maverickprojects.co.uk/uncertain-states-peckham-24-elsewhere/, as well as a dedicated website, www.thedeepriver.org.
Portraits are exhibited on house exteriors around the estate facing and facing Brockwell Park. The installation transforms the estate into a gallery offering intimate access to homes and residents in a unique way.
A takeaway newspaper that may be used as a pop-up exhibition will also be made available during the exhibition.
