Fran Cottell - The House Projects

Over the last twenty years, Cottell has produced a series of increasingly provocative live installations displaying the contents, visitors and occupants of her house as offsite projects for CGP London, (now Southwark Park Galleries 2001-11) and Raven Row (56 Artillery Lane 2017).

The House Projects are a series of time-based art works that question how to show everyday lived experiences outside of the fixed frame of the art institution in order to preserve life, or rather the breath of ‘aliveness’. In the spirit of an active and lively conversation, her work seeks to challenge hierarchies to produce a dynamic democracy in which everyone changes and exchanges points of view. Introduced by the artist’s own reflective account of producing these interventions, this book is packed with visual documentation and includes an essay by feminist art critic Katy Deepwell, alongside responses to Cottell’s work by visitors, collaborators and family members.
