Event description

Description

Sanctum Ephemeral is a series of intimate photo portraits of residents living on Cressingham Gardens Housing Estate, Brixton. Lambeth council has proposed the building of new public and private owned housing and the estate has been earmarked for demolition. The artist and resident Mark Aitken has working on the series for two years.

The photos are an exploration of how home as a repository of memory defines identity. We define our homes. Our homes define us. Portraits are exhibited on house exteriors around the estate and facing Brockwell Park. The installation transforms the estate into a gallery offering intimate access to homes and residents in a unique way.

A takeaway newspaper will also be made available during the exhibition.

Event opening: Thursday 1st June, 6pm

Exhibition talk & tour: 15th June, 6pm

Residents tour: 18th June, 2pm
