A Third Space

‘A Third Space’ serves as an archive of what should have been. Drawing from late twentieth century fashion photography, the work explores underrepresented spaces and re-imagines people of colour in traditional contexts.

‘Third Space’ is a term coined by critcal theorist, Homi K. Bhabha and is  defined by hybridity, “when marginalised and dominant cultures meet to create something new and unrecognisable, a new area of negotiation of meaning and representation. In this “in-between” space, new cultural identities are formed, reformed, and constantly in a state of becoming.
In dialogue with this theory, the work’s visual language is moulded by  sharing stories and the presence of music within each session, taking on a vital role in  creating a third space.
