ALL residents are cordially invited to the private view of the exhibition, Golden Oldies by Patricia Niven, on Tuesday 8 Dec 2009, 18:30 – 20:30.
Less than a decade and a half after the end of the Second World War, the renowned Golden Lane Estate opened its doors to its first excited residents. These residents unknowingly became pioneers in this new urban utopia, and fifty years on many of them are still living on the estate. The Golden Oldies exhibition follows 9 of these residents, most of whom have lived on the estate since its advent.
Throughout 2009, resident and photographer Patricia Niven, in conjunction with EXHIBIT, has documented these residents in a series of intimate and affecting images. This body of work will become part of EXHIBIT’s on-going initiative, Golden Lane Archive. Aside from being an important historical record, these images offer the viewer an insight into the sitter’s character – from who they were the day they became residents of the Golden Lane Estate to who they have become today. Gentle, yet thought-provoking, these portraits aim to depict the unique journeys they each have taken.
