This is an excerpt from The Huffington Post, the easiest way to explain the concept of my recent show in London.
Five years ago, “Lammy’ was sexually assaulted in a tent at a festival. She was 16. The trauma haunted her at an age
when she should have been care-free. She described the event in detail in a journal she wrote for the social network
website pencourage.com. It ended with the words, “I had never been touched before and I felt dirty, stupid and guilty”.
“Lammy”‘s story and those of five otherdiarists from pencourage.com were highlighted at a one-day exhibition, Every
Life is Extraordinary, by photographer David Boni at Hoxton Arches gallery in London this week. In it, each subject is
pictured destroying an object that best symbolises their trauma.
