Your Existence Is Everything by Southampton based artist, Jo Carson was commissioned by ‘a space’ arts in November 2018. It is a site-specific, text-based intervention, installed at the back of the Alfred Arcade on Old Northam Road.
The work was made in response to the site’s location and proximity to the railway line. Your Existence Is Everything is a message of universal positivity that directly addresses the viewer through the windows of the trains passing by.
The Alfred Arcade is part of a wider project on Old Northam Road, led by ‘a space’ arts, that aims to culturally reanimate the area and provide opportunities for local emerging artists.
