THE WRITING ON THE WALL
The Writing on the Wall is a project inspired by the messages and graffiti tags left on the Ha'penny Hatch archways (also styled as “Gallery Road”) in Deptford, south-east London. The street artist Mr. Degrì covered the archways with images of celebrities in March 2016, but his works have since been defaced by a wash of commentary challenging gentrification in the local area. I am creating six musical works that respond to the words on the archways and in the area nearby. The sequence will be launched in November 2016.
