Belgravia, one of the richest parts of London, stands for wealth and high living standard, financial power, potency and strength. The typological layout of the photographs picks up on the recurring situation on the streets of Belgravia. Each photos shows a parked Porsche in front of an upper class home with the same fences and doorways. The serial representation of the scene undermines the distinctiveness that usually comes with the possession of a Porsche. Instead of displaying the individuality and taste of its owner, it here dissolves into a reiterated sign emptied out of its original meaning. Staging the Porsches by night turns them into relict-like pieces integrated in the setting of antiquely adorned columns and spearhead-fences which recall better times.
