Street Lamp above River, 2016

Street Lamp above River is a site-specific work that sees a streetlamp removed from its typical urban setting and placed in an estranged environment beside a tranquil river in the photographic component and also within the gallery as a light-based sculpture. The physical lamp demarcates the gallery space as a functional readymade whilst also appearing in a site-specific interaction staged beside a river at night time. Street Lamp above River, particularly through its inclusion in the 2016 solo exhibition Site-Specifics, asks the audience to reconsider the means through which we inhabit and utilise the spaces around us.
