‘Places are made of stories. Our understanding of these stories defines how we think about a place, what we expect from that place and what we give back to it. How the stories are remembered and told is a political issue that defines a place – what stories dominate, and what stories that we allow ourselves to forget.’

This composition has an aerial vantage and suggests the journeys taken by the artists, on foot, through the town itself.

A broken tennis ball lies at the centre of this piece, maybe found in Queens Park where Peter and Europa walked through on their various trips to Loughborough.

The fan-like pressed courgette flowers are a reference to the vegetables that the artists noticed were always on the counter in John Storer House. This community centre in Loughborough’s town centre provides all kinds of support and information services, as well as locally grown produce. The artists were guided there after spending time with volunteers at the East Midlands Immigration Enforcement Centre.
