Grey Market

Throughout August & September 2016 I was in residence at Studio4, Chisenhale Art Place, creating an installation in the space activated by performative events. The work was inspired by gestures and exchanges from Bethnal Green Road Market and produced in collaboration with market traders and the public. The culmination of this project is a film, Grey Market, which can be viewed below. Please select HD for optimum quality.

Full audio and visual research for the project can be found here http://studio4blog.tumblr.com/
