"I wanted the piece for the market to reflect the colours, sounds, people and place that I experienced while I was there.
"I gave it an underlying structure by using a long table, suitcases, then layers of boxes, mdf and acetate sheets, which were coded with corresponding layers of paint, and read horizontally, like the diagrams of rock in geography lessons at school.
"I made thread drawings on acetate, based on conversations I had heard in the market and buildings I had seen there, and placed them in between the thicker layers: they were a thin slice of what could be observed and what could be imagined, jumbled together to form a narrative about the place they inhabited.
"I saw the structure as a very small section removed from a much longer line of boxes, which existed in some other place. The process of removal caused the internal structure to shift and the layers to fragment, causing some to settle lower than others, and for others to pivot and become vertical.
"A tape-recorder placed under one of the suitcases played the recording I had made while walking around the market and could be heard when standing close to the stall: the sounds were a mixture of music, voices and traffic, and were fragmented like the layers they sat between".
