Nicola Pearce at The Island

If we rebuild the city will the city rebuild us? proposes that seeing the city differently will help us change our perception of and gain more control over the environment in which we live.
Nicola Pearce’s prints are made using low-fi techniques. Relief prints of found wood – from skips outside building sites – and frottage of floors and walls are, to Pearce, drawings that reveal themselves, as if excavated by paint and graphite from the city itself. If you look at where you live in a different way, what do you see?
