EVIDENCING THE EAST END: paula roush & Julie Cook
paula roush [BLACKCHAPEL]  & Julie Cook [East London Stripper Collective] Two photobook projects developed at 85 Stepney Way (Whitechapel) as a double site-specific installation
msdm studios at 85 Stepney Way, Whitechapel London, May 2017

paula roush presents Blackchapel photobookwork and installation created during her residency at 85 Stepney Way,  the warehouse occupied by msdm studios since 2015. During her two- year stay, paula collected traces of the space’s social history, from Red Lyon’s ( Elizabethan theatre) archaelogical dig, LIFFE coffee and cocoa traders’s grading room, to occult lines of influence that construe Whitechapel as a space where gothic fiction is part of everyday life.
Julie Cook presents The E.L.S.C. FILES (East London Strippers Collective), a collaborative book project that evidences the activism of a group of six women, juxtaposing this with the language of photographic portraiture and performance within an East London warehouse awaiting demolition and redevelopment.
