by Tara Fatehi Irani
In these times of social distancing and dis-location, Tara Fatehi Irani reconnects with her local area, Peckham, to tell stories of places near and far, and people gone and present. Following the publication of her book Mishandled Archive (LADA, 2020), Tara’s new outdoor performance returns to the original inspiration of her project, bringing it back to the public space.
Every day in 2017, Tara dispersed a collection of family photographs and documents in public spaces in different locations around the world. This outdoor performance brings together visuals, stories and dances from that year and is a new collaboration with jazz musician Sam Warner and other local performers.

I CLEANED OUT MY WARDROBE
by VIVA ANTONIA MEYER
This is Vains. Overwhelmed with all the choices she has, she just tries to buy as much as she can. She clearly does not want to belong to some kind of brand mania, but thinks it’s okay to show off the brand you are wearing as long as it is a sports brand. Her skin is made from 60% plastic based fibres; this quantity has doubled since the year 2000. However, she has troubles with transparency. Where is she from? Who made her? It doesn’t really matter. Vains can be seen in almost every part of the world, mostly in Europe, North America, Middle America and Asia.
Vains can be seen in all fashionable and not so fashionable places everywhere in the world, mostly in Europe, North America, Middle America and Asia.
