Abstract or description

‘Binge’ is a work by Common Culture (Brown, Campbell, Durden) that consists of a set of photographs, which have been delivered as posters, placed as if images of aspiration upon the gallery wall.
Binge records the habitual scenes of spectacular weekend intoxication to be found on any British high street. Addled by overconsumption, revelers spill onto pavements, littering doorways and street furniture, bodies out of control and in peril. The work deals with media conventions that depict the excess as a result of a societal consumption.
