I am currently artist-in-residence at Exhibit Gallery on the estate and making a project about residents on the estate. Here is a project description:
For the 8th Super Estate project audio-visual artist Esther Johnson is undertaking research into Golden Lane resident’s perceptions of the unique view seen from their home windows onto the landscape of the estate and the London beyond. Through each window in the houses that comprise the estate there is a unique view that is endowed with personal perspectives and stories from the occupying resident. Johnson will create a series of audio-visual portrait vignettes titled ‘The View from my Window tells me I’m Home’, that will question and delve into concepts of home and place, and personal and public space.
I'm meeting some residents on Monday and wondered if you would also be interested in being involved and meeting Monday? If so, what time would be suitable and which House do you live in?
