Susie was paired with Jamie Delves for the Common Place project.
Susie: Jamie and I started talking about how we both missed going to art galleries and exhibitions in lockdown. Jamie suggested the MOMA gallery in New York because it reminded him of his girlfriend who lives in America and who he's currently in a long distance relationship with.
Not only do I also love the MOMA gallery in New York, but the first three years of my relationship were long distance, so that felt like an emotional common place we shared.
Space From, by Jamie Delves
Space from inamorata
The distance between us
Has me in its pocket,
Owning and overpowering me. My organs compact to pebbles
