Over the Threshold provides a unique insight into the everyday lives and domestic spaces of those who call Soho home. Working collaboratively with residents, FrenchMottershead photographed groups within their homes using movement, clothing and props to create eleven narrative works that recall classical tableaux. Each work visually portrays a theme such as the challenges of urban gardening, coping with the pressures of living in a small space, the ongoing battle to defend resident's rights, as well as the joy of being able to walk everywhere and the evocative early-morning experience of hearing the Household Cavalry exercise their horses through the Soho streets.
The exhibition at 1 Berwick St represents just one aspect of Over the Threshold. The eleven works will also be presented as a limited edition book and a series of postcards, as well as on the hoardings outside The Photographer's Gallery's redeveloping building at 16-18 Ramillies St.
Admission is free: 19-22 May.
