Alex Hall wall-mounted caravan

I am interested in how the abandoned, neglected and unwanted seem to tease a melancholy reminiscence and nostalgia. How do these objects become synchronised and enveloped into the contrasting environments they are found in. And why, when the inanimate object, both synthetic and organic collides, does it evoke an intriguing emotional response from it’s abandoners, owners and wistful admirers alike?

Using collage, photography and installation, my work is an ongoing process centralised around the caravan. My practise aims to capture, vacuum, unravel and expose the loss and impermanence of these disappearing spaces whilst investigating their seemingly implausible yet undeniable atmospheres and memories.
