21st Century Folk Art
Photobook documenting more than seven years of social practice and research by Lucy Wright.
Folk is a slippery and divisive term with some uncomfortable associations.
However, for me it doesn't represent a specific vernacular or style, nor a set of rustic artefacts once gather by Victorian collectors on bicycles and promptly preserved in aspic.
It's what can happen when people, alone or together, and regardless of anything, engage in cultural practices they create for themselves.
Documenting more than seven years of social practice and research by Lucy Wright.
