Considering the ways policy, legislation and services, at both local and national levels, assist or otherwise impact on people experiencing issues with accommodation is an important aspect of the work underpinning Luvera’s practice with homeless individuals. Also shown here is Frequently Asked Questions, a collaboration between the artist and a participant, Gerald Mclaverty.

Frequently Asked Questions is a research work that focuses on the impact of homelessness at the national level, demonstrating the true scale of the crisis through an individual’s navigation of bureaucratic and depersonalising centres of authority. Stemming from a parallel enquiry with Gerald Mclaverty, a participant of Assembly, it presents responses from 110 local authorities across the UK, based on questions arising from Gerald’s own experience of homelessness.

At the heart of Frequently Asked Questions are several questions that ask about a homeless individual’s right to access to basic living provisions such as shelter, personal safety, health, food, and communication. It is Gerald’s firm belief that councils around the UK do not always have adequate answers to these questions.
