Scope and content

Photographs of the solo installation and performance 'What Makes Me, What Makes You' by Derek Ogbourne which took place at the South London Gallery from 27 March to 4 April 1996.

The artist built a wall in the gallery to create a private enclosure where he lived for the duration of the exhibition. He recorded a form of personal history on the walls by trying to remember and write down the names of every person he has ever met. He wore a miniature video camera in order for the audience to observe what was happening in his private world. The second element of the exhibition was a screen showing the rapidly changing face of approximately six million people, symbolising the faces of every single adult person in London. The artist was referring to the process of surveillance as used by Scotland Yard.
