Under the pump

Tessa Rex

Under the Pump captures the colour-blocked anatomy of petrol stations and big industry. Tessa Rex’s compositions show a cinematic consideration for the distinct shapes of oil-driven infrastructure, and how they occupy peripheral spaces. How do these architectures affect how we move through landscape? What happens when a petrol station closes down?
