Exhibited at Third ___, Goldsmiths University of London 

Following the introduction of Right to Buy back in the 80s, and the commentary curated around "sink estates", council housing has been heavily stigmatised. The stigmatisation has been used to destroy, tear apart and displace communities from their homes. Bermondsey Spa aims to begin to deconstruct and destigmatise council housing through exploring my connection with the area. An area which I have grown up in and love. Bermondsey Spa depicts a panoramic view of a segment of the area, it shows private developments in contrast with council housing through my experience of the area this year. Through poetry and illustration, this piece explores my contention with developers and experience in Bermondsey Spa.
