20B

Jane English
Artist Development
Thursday 20 July 2017

20B  unearths the stories of a demolished building on a council estate in East London. 

To relocate her sense of home, Jane goes on a mission to find and reconnect with her former neighbours, to document their memories, and make a record of the community which was scattered by regeneration. Part auto-biography, part oral history, 20B is a moving exploration of what home and community really mean and how it feels when these things are lost. With warmth and humour, Jane uncovers the narratives of our cities, from post-war slum clearance to Olympic-era gentrification.

Jane English is a West Midlands based artist who has been selected by the East Meets West Symposium curators to perform at Departure Lounge.

This performance will be captioned using The Difference Engine.
