The Hope pub is an instillation work that combines artworks previously made by the artist; The Hope, The Hope II, In the heart of the Strong Country and Always Served Here. These elements are taken and put together to create a fictional pub from a bygone era.
The artwork is a fusion of local history and family history, it is a fictional pub with a bold name. The Hope is a place to host conversation around family, the pub, why we are losing so many family and independently owned pubs today and how our social class affects where we feel comfortable, but any topic of conversation is welcome.
