working from lived experience, Brook explores relationships between the readymade, still life, sculpture and the photograph within his home shared with his Gran in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire. Brook reflects on the cultural history of his northern home town that has strong ties to textile industry, coal mining and trade unions while exploring current political affairs.
