doing your homework - eating your dinner - drawing a picture
Flat Time House
18 January 2020
An event hosted by the Constellations group 2019/20. Included a screening of films from the London Community Video Archive introduced by Ed Webb-Ingall, a meal for participants and a publication launch.
Children from Belham Primary, the school opposite Flat Time House, recently visited John Latham’s studio home. In explaining Latham’s thinking to the group, Curator/Director Gareth Bell-Jones focused on how, to an eight year old, each of the rooms of the house relates to different states of being: rational, instinctive and intuitive; ‘ doing your homework – eating your dinner – drawing a picture’
We decided to follow the same approach.
Marking the end of ten months working together, we considered modes of collaboration in relation to public and private space within the context of FTHo as both a living sculpture and a domestic setting. Films from the London Community Video Archive were screened, a communal meal served, and a publication, launched on the day, dealing with themes of public/private, the domestic and socially engaged practice, was assembled. Ed Webb-Ingall of the LCVA introduced the archive.
