''I’m an outsider who moved to Hackney and made it their home. My work focuses on connections between memory and place in this London borough. Investigating the question: is it the imprint of recollection on a physical space that cements its identity and what happens when we take the life out of it? Can one place house many different layers of personality? Due to the pandemic, I have spent the last 2 year wandering the streets, noticing the same faces. I wanted to understand this place through collecting traces of the people living here now and before. Embodying a true flaneur, I started using my daily walks to ‘drift’ through the landscape collecting photos, rubbings, video recordings and drawings. I explored parts of the area I had never been to before and came across a selection of hidden gems, off the beaten track but popular with the locals.''
