Carly ScottCarly Scott’s practice more often than not conjures striking and beautiful images of very attractive people. Her more personal projects – I’m thinking of The Trip, her family photo. essays and Untitled featured here – also suggest a keen awareness as to how materialities can point to social relations of inequality and to everyday life in the city. Whether it be a patch of ravaged linoleum beneath a payment kiosk, careworn décor mirroring family concerns, or here, an abject tableau of abandoned and toppled plastic, glass and fag butts sandwiched between brick and steel, caught like a specimen of Perec’s infra-ordinary.
