Fez








I don't often post images of installations that are created for display in a gallery setting, so here are a few of one created at the end of 2013 for an exhibition in Istanbul, Turkey.

Why is it so hard to find a job? - Construction Worker























Université de Nanterre, Paris, France

I've just got back from Paris where I was helping to promote ReAct Paris, a conference organised by the European Parliament to tackle the problems of unemployment in Europe, particularly youth unemployment, which in some parts of Europe stand close to a miserable 30%. 

I was leaving miniature workers hidden around the streets of Paris and asking the question "Why is it so hard to find a job?"


The following installations were all shot in Paris for the event. 


Find out more about the conference at

Hide and Seek






Hop, Skip and Jump



Play Fighting


Wandsworth Common, London


I was humbled to be asked to work with War Child, the charity who support children affected by war around the world. The three installations above were created for 20 Years of War Child, a new exhibition celebrating 20 years of the charity's work. The show is being staged at The British Music Experience museum of popular music at the O2 in London, and will feature my works alongside photography and album artwork showcasing War Child's long-running collaboration with the great and good of the music industry. The exhibition opens on Tuesday 19th February and runs until 28th March.

Stroll



Gorky Park, Moscow, Russia


Happy New Year! I hope you all had a great festive season and wish you all the best for 2013!















I recently participated in the Question and Answer series for BetteryMagazine.com, in which one creative person asks another a question about the transformation of our cities. In my case I was paired with the singer Nelly Furtado who asked "The bigger, the better - Is that also true of cities?" You can read my reply here as well as see some more of my work.

Balancing Act





Khayelitsha township, Cape Town, South Africa


This installation was left in Khayelitsha, a township in Cape Town, last year. The settlement is home to around 500,000 people and experiences many problems such as poverty, crime and a high rate of HIV infection - an estimated 16% of the population. Life can be tough, especially for children. 

This image will be available to purchase from my shows with a percentage of the proceeds going to Baphumelele, a community project in Khayelitsha that aims to help local children. Specifically the money will be used in projects that help children who have been affected by HIV/AIDS - Clemens Cares For Kids which helps children suffering from HIV/AIDS and Baphumelele Children's Home which looks after children who have been orphaned or abandoned.
