“The Affected Site,” “Copper Smelting Established the Area,” and “Prior to the Site”

Research output: Other contribution


Over the last year, artists and writers have been looking at three British cities through a magnifying glass – or rather through a property portal.

In this project part-funded by the Arts Council, 10 artists have each been paired with a writer and invited to make new works about a home or property on the market in their local area.

In the online exhibition presented in the guise of an estate agency website, viewers can browse these properties imagined through artists’ and writers’ eyes.

Focussing in on NORWICH, BRISTOL and LEEDS, these are the latest editions of a project which looks at property as a a space of personal rather than of monetary value. Documenting Britain’s changing attitudes to house and home, it has become especially relevant over the last two years when collectively millions of lockdown hours have led us to re-evaluate our feelings about the places we inhabit.
