hotel - working with angels
(Events and Live Works, Installations)

 

"Focussing on aspects of interaction & relationship rather than on art objects, calls for a radical re-arrangement in our expectations of what an artist does."

Room no.3

This is my room (No.3)

the pic was taken by Deborah Weinreb, one of the artists participating in Hotel, she's been working with a secret collaborator sending photos & receiving narrative responses, here's the story she got for Room 3:

The pink candlewick bedspreads dominate a scene of perfect conventialism. Two little doggies in the painting observe any breach of proper behaviour. But after lights-out who knows what happens.... This timeless room - if it could speak it would speak a novel. The occupants eat a full English breakfast, walk hand in hand under an English sky. And upon the next morning wake to birdsong - only one bed has been slept in.


The previous Hotel owners used to call it 'the Dolls House', Jackie the Landlady, says she'd like to chintz it up, put a double bed in ..the love nest. Its really cosy, you step down into it, a little sanctuary.

My initial feeling was that the room was perfect just as it is, but keen to see what may occur I booked in for a night...
