Originally a mail art project exhibited at Art Lab in 2017, this project developed into a sited photographic performance work exhibited in 2018 at Art Night, Brighton Photo Biennale, Great Eastern Wall, and in 2019 at Newcastle Grainger Market. Uncertain Subjects Part situates itself between photographic document, performance and a work of activism. In an 8 hour performance a single billboard was constantly covered and recovered with new billboards: Head and bare shoulder portraits of people who – in the face of Brexit – feel this country no longer represents their best interest, people who feel like they have become alienated within their own country and many whom have decided to move out of the UK. The work gives a voice to those 48.3% of the populations that has been silenced by the failing democratic processes. It brings a personal lived experience back into the conversations surrounding Brexit.
