London being Freddie’s hometown she feels very passionate about it and its ever-evolving changing face. Once a place where everyone could afford to live, it is now a place made for the rich, investing in the rich and kicking out the poor. With house prices rising and rising, people are struggling to live on this little island called London. Once a place where council estates were prominent and communities were generations old, it has now turned into a transient place, people coming and going. The young white middle classes, doing their four years in London and then moving on to affordable places to live. Is this place once built on history and tradition turning into one big airport?
Through the use of banners, textile paintings and script, Freddie discusses London, the fabric of society. With every stitch sewn, with every button sewn on, you can feel her passion hovering behind you like a ghost that will not go away. So immerse yourself in the material, feel its presence because she may not be able to afford to live here anymore but she certainly won’t go away.
