Phase 1 of Housed: is ready for the PV

In the first phase of Housed:, the artists took on installation, without input from the curating group – who would see the show for the first time tomorrow [Wednesday 8 April 2015] just prior to re-curation/re-hang of the work.

There was a great variety of works, all linked to the overall remit in some way, that is, related to the theme of Housed: as well as considering that the work may be re-“housed” mid-way through the project.

Overall, there seemed to be a strong cohesion between the works, all conversant with the nearest pieces in some fashion, with a strong sense of unity and flow overall.
