DIFFERENT BUSES
The pieces in this exhibition draw on my own experiences of school in one particular year – 1986. I have used a medley of letters, exams papers, sporting paraphernalia, uniforms and school colours to convey the underlying sameness and universality of the human condition.

The invisibility of the boundaries which separated ‘us’ from ‘them’ is the concept which lies behind this project. Twenty-three years ago, our ‘differences’ created tension and posed a threat. Yet what I see now – with hindsight and maturity – is what we had in common: we all came from a womb; we were all girls; most of us would become women some day; some of us would give birth to little girls of our own. This project challenges observers to reflect on the unresolved tensions from their past, to question their own boundaries, and to consider what they have in common with those they perceive as different.
