[re]locate is a sound installation by London-based artist, Tahera Aziz, responding to the tragic events surrounding the racially motivated murder of 18-year-old Stephen Lawrence near a bus stop in Eltham in 1993.
Motivated by a desire to explore the potential of sound to re-examine the Lawrence case, Aziz has developed this thought-provoking and poignant installation in which the audience is encouraged to generate their own mental images of events. This unique approach to the work provides a creative mechanism for deepening audience engagement with the complex and multi-layered narratives associated with the case. [re]locate shifts the audience to examine evolving definitions of contemporary experience in rera Alationship to cities and the people who reside within them.
[re]locate has been produced with funding from the Arts Council of England and the Arts and Humanities Research Council (research and development), in partnership with London South Bank University and PVA MediaLab.
