SHIFTING SANDS:

ANXIOUS LANDSCAPES IN URBAN WORLDS

[ Past ]

 

| 19 July 2019 |

| Hoxton Basement | London, UK |

| Overview |

The exhibition comprised

a visual representation of

a year-long research project which

sought to capture the

processes of urban development in

Accra, Ghana.

Here, colonial legacies

embedded in the politics of land

and the inequalities of the

contemporary global economy

have given rise to conditions which

challenge the ability to secure

sustainable and just urban futures.

 

The research explored

two sets of spaces in the city:

a resource periphery

and an

emerging urban centre.

 

‘Shifting sands’ speaks to the

conjuncture of these spaces as an

urban landscape in constant

flux, change and becoming.

All proceeds from the

sale of photography

were returned to those

communities and individuals

who facilitated the research.
