Reclaim The Street With Us And Them

The collection Us and Them is about embodying discarded street furniture as a reclamation of the streets by women, and as an act of resistance against the normalisation of patriarchy. The political slogans were inspired by graffiti on mattresses in Hackney, an obvious nod to feminist Artists and particularly poignant to Trump’s inauguration. A metaphor for the dead end situations in which women find themselves in and the high necklines covering the mouth symbolise silence. A reaction to an oppressive freedom of speech mentality that shows our new political era, perhaps out of our control but we will not be entering it silently.
