The Inheritance Project

29th May – 12th June 2014

Private View: Friday 30th May 2014 7pm-9pm

The Inheritance Project is a documentary portraiture series, created by photographer Hayley Benoit and stylist Hannah Newman, winners of the Ideastap Innovators Fund 2013. After a successful run in Shoreditch, the exhibition is moving to HOUSE gallery for a two-week slot.

The project focuses on the relationship between parent and child, the features and characteristics we inherit and the changing of fashions over time.

“The idea as a whole was triggered from watching how the style of friends and family has evolved over the years,” says Hayley, “and how they appeared to be transforming very much into their parents.”

The subjects are dressed as their parent, when their parent was of a similar age, channeling fashion trends from the 1960s to the 1990s.

Hannah and Hayley have a connection through fashion and are known for their fashion editorials, inspired by analogue snapshots and vintage fashion. Their work has previously featured in i-D online, The Girl Mag, Art Wednesday, Disorder magazine and STOP magazine.

THE ANCHORED IN LONDON EXHIBITION AND LAUNCH 1st – 9th May

Launch: 2nd May

7pm – 9pm

Anchored in London is an unflinching, inspirational and moving exhibition of the lives of those that survived the Vietnam War. Come join us in our traditional modern day Vietnamese home at House Gallery as we kick-start the exhibition off with an evening of theatre, live Vietnamese cooking and drinks.

About the project

Over the past two years we have been working with the Vietnamese community, particularly in Lambeth, interviewing and recording their experiences of what it was like to live during the Vietnam War and how life has fared for them since arriving in the UK. We have also been speaking to the second generation and finding out what it’s been like to be of yellow skin, but live in such a western society. What is the generation gap? And how do we communicate across it? The project aims to draw out the links between Britain and the Vietnam War; what support did the British give and what were the views of the government during that time?

The Anchored in London Project has also produced a booklet, DVD, website that will archive this amazing history of an untapped community.
