The Precariat seeks to explore themes of risk and resistance through architectural form. Emerging artist Karen Mc Lean will present an installation that invites and reveals the darker harmonies of historical and contemporary occupation.
The Caribbean landscape is scattered with makeshift housing illustrative of creativity, tenacity, poverty and a landless peasantry. Using the material inheritance of Caribbean colonialism, Karen explores the historical forces that have kept this form alive into the present day. Questioning the physical structures of everyday life, McLean seeks to create a charged and highly distinct site, responding to the ever present fear of dispossession.
