Amy Boulton’s work takes the form of site-specific installations, involving sculptural and digital components. Her choice of imagery often revolves around commercial and domestic spheres, invoking the concepts of labour and leisure. She aims to raise questions of how and why the home and the workplace have come to bleed into one another spatially and temporally, and of the extent to which we identify with workplace roles. Her practice is rooted in the everyday, lived experience of the city, bearing witness to the multiplicity and instability of urban identity. Her research is focused primarily on the effects of city development – looking at politics through the lens of the constructed environment, and insisting on their relation.
