Home Sweet Home is a curated programme of twenty short films. They will be screened at my open studio event on the 11th and 12th October.
The films range from 60s and 70s advertising and educational shorts to contemporary artist films.
Collectively they form a framework for thinking about 1960s social housing (which my studio is an example of) and contemporary regeneration.
Running time is 50 minutes.
Films and images kindly sourced from the British Council, London Metropolitan Archives, RBKC Local Studies and Archive, Wellcome Collection, Ad* access Digital Collection, D'Arcy Macius Benton & Bowles Records, John W. Hartman Centre for Sales, Advertising and Marketing History, David M. Rubenstein Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Duke Univeristy, Gloucester Court Reminiscence Group, Nahid, residents of Silchester Estate and Dee Harding.
To complement this feast of film, I will be playing vintage vinyl and inviting visitors to bring their old records for a spin on the turntable. These images and sounds will hopefully inspire us to create a drawing and text installation. Sounds fun? Why not visit me at 7 Shalfleet Drive, W10 6UF. My studio is located opposite Latimer Road station. I will be open on both saturday and sunday from 11-6pm.
