Grope Lane
Installation, Video (2015)


The idea was to explore an Unusually named street that existed in numerous english towns: Grope Cunt Lane.
This street was predominately where prostitutes would work and provide their services. At this time The sex trade was tolerated and regulated. The word cunt was not a an offensive or vulgar term as we know it today. 
I was fascinated by the combination of these three words and the way they worked together, the finishing word lane almost negates the peculiarity and power of the previous words. I was also really interested in the context of the street name. For my project I wanted to explore the word's and word combination as well as the connotations in a philosophical way and the relevance of this obscure street name today.
