from 'heroin' to heroines
photomonth exhibition

.................................................................................
Briony Campbell, Elam Forrester, Therese Henningsen, David Roberts and Andrea Luka Zimmerman.

This exhibition traces the journey of the residents of the soon-to-be demolished Haggerston Estate once labelled the ‘heroin capital of Europe’. To challenge these crass stereotypes that demonise social housing residents across the country and to reimagine the future of public housing, residents have spent their final summer in the estate reviving the virtuous heroines of 18th Century novelist Samuel Richardson after which the estate’s blocks were named.

The exhibition interrogates ideas of public and private, home and history, architecture and regeneration, how we’re seen and how we see. It is part of Photomonth 2012.

If you are visiting, please respect that people live beside and behind the images.
