If We Only Had Another Room
If we only had another room is a reflection upon a specific place in Melbourne; St. Georges Road, Toorak which the artist drives through on their return home from work to a small rented studio apartment. Manners’ works often make reference to the phenomenon of developing place, enquiring into the complexities and nuances that arise when doing so.
This video is a meditation upon the inconceivable wealth present on this particular road, with one house said to be ‘worth’ $70 million. It also more broadly looks at the way people inhabit space and how it is used or not used.
