This is supposed to go to the Tap Gallery as an entry into the Oxford Art Prize and all entries are to be about the postcode 2010 – Surry Hills, Sydney.
58 Foveaux St was my first home, where my mother Vaike Tikker lived in 1964. Vaike could not cope as a single mum and I was adopted out quite soon after my birth.
58 Foveaux St is now a car park but I am imagining Vaike looking down on her old neighbourhood and hopefully happy and at peace.
