Description

An examination of the context of my youth growing up in Mersyside, spanning 1974-1996, a turbulent period for the region. Created using found footage and drawing on influences ranging from social realist landscape painting and DJ sets from the mid 90’s.

“Where Were You When It Was Shit? beams into the past while carrying an undeniable urgency in the current moment.”  – Stephanie Gavan, bido lito! journal
