LITTLE WICKED PARADISES - a photographic project by Anja Priska for the Hackney-Wickipedia Show

I am planning to present a series of manipulated large-scale photographs printed on PVC-tarpaulin. These works will conjure „little wicked paradises“, meaning I will transform pictures of Hackney Wick into kinds of attractive, romantic, occasionally cheesy images, that remind the viewer on 80ies-like photo-wallpapers. The first step of this manipulation will be accomplished physically, namely by literally wallpapering walls in the carpark and alley-way in front of my studio-entrance of Oslo House. In the second stage I will combine these pictures with reminiscences of Hackney Wick historic-relevant attributes, glorified and made up as little paradises. I am particularly thinking of the motorcycle –club 59 and it’s logo or the characters of it’s founders. The method of having these images printed on PVC-tarpaulin allows the photographs to even be displayed outside, let’s say to create your immediate paradise around you. This fact picks up and deals with the whole redevelopment situation and often almost absurd beautification taking place in Hackney Wick. (for example the awkward flower-boxes placed in the midst of the pavement in front of an entirely shabby mixture of demolition place and car park).
