Charlotte Squire is a visual artist based in London and SW England.
Her practice is concerned with class, cultural difference and materiality.
Equivalence within difference is a way of understanding the relationships of things. Layers of information are woven together over time, creating a dialogue using echoes of ephemera remaining.
I use installation as a methodology. The use of domestic materials evolved while raising my sons in the home environment where these materials have resounding relevance.
I am interested in the site as an observation point; the place is static in time, people come & go over time, small dramas & encounters occur, changing tastes & and cultures evolve and unfold.
I am not concerned to take a moral stance but to present visual connections as a way of exploring cultures of difference.
The site & work are symbiotic, the work is not separate from the space, but inhabits it. Squire looks for urban spaces that enrich and describe the city’s history as a site for living, telling rich visual tales of lives of London people. She has used derelict & vacated sites for many installations, and has work commissoned for regeneration projects including a permanent installation in Brixton, London
