The Crow

THE CROW, To a young girl, the height of the Housing Commission flats resembles mountains offering shelter from wind and the multitude of windows suggests the many families living there. She imagines that if she also lived there, she would have many children as friends to play with, feel safe and have a sense of belonging. These unresolved early longings often persist into adult life. The work explores the desire to belong, which can become so intense that the character takes extreme measures to find a way of entering a community. Media: video art.
