Artworks Of Resistance
In the run up to the hearing for the proposed Hondo Tower in Brixton, Save Nour have commissioned three artworks (#ARTWORKSOFRESISTANCE) for Brixton communities to experience in public space that aim to amplify local voices and experiences of gentrification. Find out more about the #FightTheTower campaign and Save Nour on instagram and twitter.
I am delighted to announce that I have been selected as one of the artists! A specially commissioned piece, (developed from my Signs Of Development series) is going on display on a giant billboard in the heart of Brixton, at the junction of Atlantic Road and Coldharbour Lane (opposite the iconic Dogstar).
“Brixton is my chosen home but the changes that have occurred mean I feel less and less like I belong here. A strong motivation in the work that I make is a call for justice, for fairness, for equality for all. Now, more than ever, local voices seem not to be heard. Now is the time to amplify them!”
