There is no such thing as society / Victoria Playford
Exploring individual and group behaviours within contemporary culture.
“There’s no such thing as society, there are individual men and women and there are families.” Margaret Thatcher made this statement in 1987. It forms the basis of my concept, which explores individual and group behaviours within contemporary culture.
The events chosen address issues surrounding representations of violence within contemporary society. I am interested with the banality of the everyday and how watching the news and reading the newspaper has become an almost mundane activity for an apathetic audience.
The objects don’t aim to document or provide facts about these events but to visually and conceptually question the harshness of these materials when taken out of their intended context and environment.
