Private Property

Cally Trench writes: 'For Private Property, I took on the role of explorer and cartographer. I mapped an area around where I live, including houses and a cemetery, at ground level, noting what I could (and couldn't) see. The areas that cannot be seen at ground level are painted in the yellow ochre colour often used in maps to depict deserts. The drawings follow the common map conventions of showing the area from above using orthogonal projection.'

Private property was exhibited in Pavilion II at the Buckinghamshire County Museum and The Great Purpose in the Mile End Art pavilion in 2008; and Surface! at The Oxfordshire Museum, Woodstock in 2009; and in Get Carta at Karin Janssen Project Space, London (curated by Stephen Harwood) in 2012.
