Whilst Artist in Residence at the Tate Gallery. Liverpool, the focus of the work was based around areas of urban regeneration. In an on-gonq project entitled “An A-Z of Empty Spaces” Neville began to consider the spaces and places, once homes and now left vacant. The objects left behind and notions of “home and belonging”. The tower block, Kenley Close was one such building.
