Property, privilege and provocation…

What happens when the dream explodes?

Travel back in time to Chicago, 1959, to an all-white, middle class neighbourhood. Spinning off of Lorraine Hansberry’s seminal play A Raisin in the Sun, Bev and Russ have sold their house to a black family, upsetting the ‘social order’ and creating havoc among their friends. Act II fast-forwards to 2009 and the tables are turned when a white couple’s attempt to buy and tear down the same house - now in an all-black neighbourhood - is met with equal opposition. Bruce Norris looks at prejudice, property, and political correctness, then and now, in a blisteringly funny satire.

Autumn was upon us, the community garden had already started to wilt and die, creating a strong contrast to what was only but a few weeks ago. How life is ever so fleeting. Fascinated, I decided to explore the new shapes and textures with my photography. I began to see the beauty within the ordinary, observing the pure aesthetics from the simplicity of nature caught between summer and winter. This series 'Impermanence' was born. -Roderick Chen
