Lee Grant’s process of returning ‘home’ to Belconnen, the 25 northernmost suburbs of Canberra, was a cathartic experience in which she reconciled her perception of place with its banal and vernacular reality. Within this body of work Lee seeks to reveal the intricacies of living in suburbs that may be dismissed by many but cherished by some. A place where residents take ownership of where they are from, a place that can engender a sense of pride so strong it is literally written onto the body.
