Imagining Kings Cross is Anne Howeson’s solo exhibition. Howeson’s drawings turns Kings Cross/St Pancras into a palimpsest. Places and fragments are appropriated from imagery hidden in London print archives – including the London Metropolitan Archives, Museum of London and the Foundling Museum – and subverted in scale, context and content. The digitally reprinted images are rubbed out and re drawn, becoming new works evoking a sense of passing time through memory and invention. The unbuilt places of the future and disappeared buildings from the past are imagined and revisited. Part document, part fiction, the work presents architectural regeneration, while considering its effects on the environment and communities of today.
