"Sherbet Green and Harlesden High Street are reimagined as two novel locations existing across the confines of various spatial definitions. Two separate, colliding worlds shift between the recognisable forms of bedroom, wetroom, office, and spa, familiar yet displaced. They retain connection through an allusion to the boundaries of physical space: public versus private, pleasure versus pain, and soiled versus wiped clean. Touch becomes illuminated in this built universe, a constellation of imagined encounters shared between indexical bodies, their actions and events mapped out in fingerprints and other marks. Spaces of exchange – of sensation, desire and longing – are populated with ambiguous objects that imply a sense of their use while ultimately working against ideas of functionality."
