blackwell street is a fragmented reconstruction of a home in the family for decades. for the duration of the exhibition, the gallery becomes the site of the home in it's current dilapidated form; the qualities and ambience of which impart a sense of lost hope and existential belittlement. the vacancy of this once inhabited space within the gallery recalls memory of melancholy in desolation.
