Household War

Edie Boulting

My artwork speaks about the conflict of social housing in London. It shows how residents are trapped being forcibly moved from their houses and apartments to other social housing that can be halfway across the country. This, in my eyes, is a form of conflict as there is a violence in this eviction and social cleaning of the city. The string I used to wrap around the metal structure embodied this entrapment and inability to escape the governmental housing system. This for me is war that is not called a war as it has been constructed by those meant to prevent war.
