Scratching the surface @ 195 Anfu Lu Shanghai


‘Scratching the Surface’     Frottage of Shanghai's underbelly          Crouched down on the streets of Shanghai,      I place beautiful handmade paper from Guanxi over the drain covers.          Rubbing charcoal on paper I reveal patterns, textures and information about secrets below the surface of the street.      I trace where I have been, mapping the places that I love and scratch the surface of a China that continues to captivate and hold my gaze with awe and inspiration.      

‘Scratching the Surface’

Frottage of Shanghai's underbelly

 

Crouched down on the streets of Shanghai,

I place beautiful handmade paper from Guanxi over the drain covers. 

Rubbing charcoal on paper I reveal patterns, textures and information about secrets below the surface of the street.

I trace where I have been, mapping the places that I love and scratch the surface of a China that continues to captivate and hold my gaze with awe and inspiration.
