Series, House to House by Patricia Howard and Suburbs by Andrew Currie.
Place and displacement intertwine the series House to House and Suburbs by Pat Howard and Andy Currie. In both series images of inhabited and desolated town and suburbs share similar sense of alienation produced by powerless and meaningless life.
Both subjects of the photographer’s stories: Pat’s mother and Andy’s concrete dwellers are presented with the same sense of being in a place that is not ideal or preferred place to be; they don’t like it but can’t do anything about it.
Alienation is central on Currie’s overcast, temperamental, dystopian views of overdeveloped suburbs. In contrast, Pat’s installation is trying to understand her mother’s constant displacement by retracing it and by recreating their presence through personal objects and textile.
