Save Event: Topography of Modern Life

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


The topography of modern life is formed by the construction of the buildings that surround us, shape our lives and give us a sense of place and belonging. The financial crisis has brought to sharp attention the importance of property, not just in this country but worldwide.


This diverse exhibition draws together the work of five emerging photographers; James Berrington, Gage Solaguren, Jasper Jones, Leticia Batty and Joy Maxwell-Davis whom are all recent University of Westminster graduates.

These artists explore the temporality and meanings of place and home and the factors that shape the topography that surround us. A post-industrial town in the north of England; the financial crisis in Spain where housing developments have stalled and been abandoned; a personal examination of a childhood home; unfinished tourist industry hotels and infrastructure in Egypt; and an examination of the housing crisis through the form of the ubiquitous house brick.
