'never to take the tedious task of waiting for a bus for granted.'

(What Stephen Lawrence Has Taught Us by Benjamin Zephaniah)

[re]locate revisits an ordinarily public place that retains the traces of a deeply significant event; it is concerned with the struggle to preserve the memory of that event whilst offering new insights. The impetus for the work flows from the tragic events surrounding the racially motivated murder of 18-year-old Stephen Lawrence near a bus stop in south London in 1993, and the deep impact this has had publicly particularly following the Stephen Lawrence Inquiry into the police handling of the murder investigation, and its subsequent lack of resolution. Taking the notion of the daily routine of waiting at the bus stop as its starting point, [re]locate explores the disruption of the everyday, to foreground the event once again, highlighting detailed elements that have particular resonance.
