Peng Munch for Old G Thames  

My offering to the River Thames on the South Bank is a clay platter of press moulded fried chicken and slip cast chicken bones. Originating from the North of England, I have made my home in South London and feel a deep sense of belonging there. This includes a love of fried chicken. In a London that is being ‘regenerated’ (gentrified) at speed, the ubiquitous chicken shops that line the high streets of South London provide a cheap and tasty, but often maligned dish to teenagers and low wage earners.

I regard the multitude of discarded chicken bones on pavements as ‘modern archaeological’ finds, much like ceramic fragments found on the Thames foreshore. They are symbols for the precarious, pushed-out and disregarded. They also act as motif for working class history; echoing the oyster shells that were thrown into the Thames, detritus from the Georgian and Victorian dock workers diet. My offering is for them; to celebrate working class culture and wish for a fairer society.
