excerpts from There Goes The Neighbourhood, 2018

Hyundai Ioniq, dash cam, text, LED lights

Where does memory travel?

How much does it cost?

Who participates?

Who curates?

What is art?

These questions are starting points for research and reflection resulting in an experiential taxi ride and ‘drive by listening tour’ through the neighbourhood directly around Open School East, Margate.

This artwork was composed of multiple elements:

Hood Musics
a mixtape of music representing the many sociocultural groups living and working in close proximity to Open School East, compiled through conversations with people living and working in Cliftonville, Margate

Streets is Watching

Let The Record Show
a performance of Outspoken Word + Subliminal Bass by Swan Nemesis, presented in the car wash at the corner of Athelstan and Northdown Road in Cliftonville, Margate

Excerpts in the form of text based posters and interactions were disseminated in various locations in the area
