Via Dolorosa

This site-specific work draws upon the narrative aspects of the 14 Stations of the Cross. The images are taken from one of the 21st Century's most well-known and controversial TV series, Channel 4's Big Brother.
It is an observation of a new 'religion' that worships Celebrity and celebrates auto-idolatry, public persecution and suffering.
The work provokes uncomfortable questions about our belief systems, in the context of a media-driven, quick fix, and instant-satisfaction society.
The site of the installation, the Ha'Penny Hatch Bridge that crosses Deptford Creek, alludes to the tradition of the Stations of the Cross as a journey or pilgrimage made by Christians. The work supplies an uninvited intervention into the viewer's conscience during the course of an otherwise ordinary journey across the bridge from Deptford to Greenwich, transforming the location into a place of contemplation. An artist's book for this body of work using photo etching and blind emboss is in process.
