The Landscape at WW Patio Projects

Installing The Landscape at WW Patio Projects

WWPatio Projects 30 Queensdown Road, E5 8NN
Private View: 2 August 6.00 – 9.00
Exhibition dates: 2 August – 2 September, open 24/7
Open 24/7 - Patio Projects Public Art Programme (Site-specific public art - outdoor space only
The Landscape is a site-specific photo installation, forming part of the on-going public art project Time stands still when I think of you. The project derives from an archive of over 100 found family photos, the earliest of which dates from the turn of the nineteenth century.
Whilst previous installations from the project have focused on specific events or familial relationships, for Patio Projects #10 the wall of the patio space is transformed into a photographic montage of landscapes. The relationship between the environments depicted in the photographs, and how they intercept with the urban landscape of Hackney Downs, is central to the piece, the proximity of one affecting the reading of the other.
