Claiming Space and Displaying Ownership
Jean Jacques Rousseau in The Social Contract suggested that ‘civil society’ most likely began when a person fenced off a plot of ground and took it into his/her head to claim ‘this is mine’, whilst others accepted this assertion.
Lou Hazelwood – This is Ours
In this work Hazelwood has taken found 35mm slides and in her selection and change of format of the images is drawing our attention to the way we display and claim ownership of not only our own image but of our environment.
Her practice considers the ‘nostalgic image’ and our responses to it and our ability to see in others recorded memories our personal individual pasts.
She raises questions about whether our memories and ways of recording are forming a collective response and whether the way we record only specific events is culturally embedded and she is interested in how this now differs in the way we display digitally.
A limited edition book run of 25 numbered and signed books, including 5 ‘’ images, are available to buy from the shop for £6.25
