Overview

Increasingly, the distinction between traditional notions of public and private; the street and the home; or the image we present to strangers compared to our families blurs in our modern world.

Whilst we are accustomed to having advertising all around us and social media documenting our every move, there are times when our private thoughts and personal spaces seem ever more important and vital.

The exhibition hoarding curated by arts organisation Metal, introduces the visitor to these two worlds, from monumental billboards designed by 10 UK artists to the intimate, everyday journals of Peterborough residents. The overall effect is to consider the bigger questions of our time provoked by and through the intimate expression of others.
