This Space I Belong presents the contemporary documentary works of fifteen emerging artists. Informed by the collective need to feel a sense of belonging in our surroundings, the exhibition explores notions of conflicting identity, community, our environments and change, investigating current cultural and socioeconomic issues. The featured works examine the multifaceted perception of what it means to belong, from the housing problem and regeneration of London to the questioning of dual-heritage identity and the documentation of simply trying to exist and find one’s self in a fragmented society.
Acting as an alternative graduate show for UAL’s Photography, Photojournalism and Documentary Photography BA courses, This Space I Belong is a collaborative effort between the collective of graduates and curator Bethany Williams. www.bethanyewilliams.com / @bethanyewilliam
