Artist's Description

Background story: In the UK, I am always amazed by how involved people are in the charity world, but also politically. I love the fact that there is a culture of empowerement: if we strongly believe that something is wrong, we can do something about it without having to revert to violence.

One of UK’s largest supermarket chain was planning a superstore in the heart of Stoke Newington, at the heart of the vibrant East London.
How would people protest? By making the dead rise from their graves!
Friendly Stoke Newington and Hackney residents gathered on Saturday 1 October 2011 and lurched like zombies along the road, lodging their opposition to the proposal of a this new superstore.

The idea? Stoke Newington had long been an area of radical thought. In the 19th century, one of the hottest issues for political and social reform in Stoke Newington society was the Abolition of Slavery. Dr Thomas Binney, the ‘Archbishop of Non-conformity’ has a portrait in the National Portrait Gallery that shows him at the Anti-Slavery Society Convention. Thomas Binney is buried close to the Church Street entrance in Abney Park Cemetery.

Fast forward to 2011. Local people were concerned about the development because they fear for the community of independent shops, which provide a livelihood for hundreds of families. The development has serious implications for local traffic and would involve the demolishment of shops and homes.
Local people had said over and over again that they felt that a superstore would drive a stake through the heart of the community and change the feel of an area that people know and love so well.

I joined this event and was amazed to see so many people joining in, and putting so much effort to make it memorable. This reminds me of two quotes I always loved:

“if you believe you are too small to make a difference, you have never spent a night with bed bugs” Unknown

“Snowflakes are one of nature’s most fragile things, but just look at what they can do when they stick together” Kelly Vesta
