Conservatory

1997

A HOUSEWATCH project

Conservatory

Featured works by Ian Bourn and John Smith (above image), Lulu Quinn, George Saxon, Tony Sinden, Stan Steele and Alison Winckle.

Like their Paperhouse project in Japan, HOUSEWATCH constructed a portable 'building' with an internal video projection system, this time designed to be sited in park or garden spaces in the UK.

Modelled on a free-standing Victorian design, the thirty foot long Conservatory enabled a repeating programme of twelve-screen works, by each of the artists, to be viewed by audiences walking around the entire structure.

Conservatory was first shown in Hoxton Square London and was commissioned for the opening of the Lux Centre.

(HOUSEWATCH, formed by Ian Bourn in 1985, are a group of artists who work using light, film, sound and performance to transform ordinary urban locations and situations into new and exciting venues for events).
