People around here

 

I really quite enjoy living around here. I guess being a suburban girl its not surprising. What surprises me is that suburbia and the suburbanite have become the scapegoat for all that is distasteful about Australian culture. I find this quite interesting given that most Australians actually live in a suburb. So what and who is it that makes up this generic Suburbia? The mythologizing of suburbia and the suburbanite is what inspires my current body of work. The anti-suburbia sentiment is alive and well in the cultural imaginary and the popular critique just doesn’t sit right with me. People around here, is a series documenting people in the suburb I have lived for the last 10 years.
