Lamaze / 6B
Foxtrot's installation was part of a one day project to raise residents’ awarness on infrastructure’s nuisance. The party took place on a section of a motorway closed for that special day. We exhibited a series of photographs, drawings, videos and statistics describing the neighbourhoods from a different points of view. Foxtrot also worked in collaboration with Nicolas Fonty from Studio Secchi-Vigano, to design an interactive map and record locals comments about their area and its transformation.
Hackney Wick map for sale / TIL Gallery
A map associated to as serie of interviews conducted with different protagonists involved in the area's transforamtion. They are just as difficult to arrange as the map itself. It is important to associate them with this aspect of the area because they may not be the same tomorrow. Yet today the territory of Hackney Wick and its transformation belong to them.
During the exhibition, the map was giving you a chance to look at the whole of Hackney Wick. Considered one by one, the pieces of the map are reduced to abstract paintings. You could buy a piece of land and become a "landlord", by this act you were also losing a sense of the bigger picture of Hackney Wick.
This segmentation of the map is a playful way of illustrating the town planner's dilemma. How to build a city vision with huge amount of landlords? Is it possible and fair to have only one landowner?
