Screen capture from a video piece “Overflow”

A 2:52 min long video piece, played on a loop. The video shows a London estate, where it’s background sky and colour panels of the building have been replaced with a video of a bathtub filling with water. Bubbles and waves are visible and a sound of a bathtub emptying out is played. Exploring the London housing crisis this artwork is a play on the aspect how demand for housing is skyrocketing whilst the amount of affordable housing keeps decreasing.

The “Overflow” is part of series of works that Anta is currently developing. She is focusing on repetitive patterns in the urban environment, such as lookalike housing estates. The first screening of this artwork was in a small exhibition in China, that has it’s own wealth of identical estates in urban housing areas.
