Hypervigilance, 2017 - ongoing
A derelict house sits by a beck within an overgrowth of trees and nettles; it sits dormant waiting for its owners to arrive...
Built by two farmers, the house was to be given to their daughter on the day of her wedding.
Tragically, the parents passed away before they could hand the keys.
Over the coming years, a family dispute between the siblings arose as to whether the house should be kept in the family or sold. An agreement couldn’t be made and as a result, the house sits vacant to this day.
Today, the house plays host to the local youth seeking refuge for their nocturnal activities.
What was once to be a family home has now become a dilapidated sanctuary.
