The New Economy / Thankyou For Calling
MetadataShow full item record
This was a group exhibition that featured myself and Martin Parr, Anne Hardy, Richard Billingham, Danny Treacy, John Kippin, Dirk Wackerfuss, Jo Broughton and John Paul Bichard. My contribution was a selection of images from ongoing research into Show Homes on new housing estates. In particular the work looks at the role of interior design and how it functions both as a reflection of peoples needs and aspirations whilst simultaneously revealing something about the wider social/political climate. The exhibition and book was an exploration of "interior design in the nuclear age". The exhibition brought together a number of artists whose work is concerned with the function of interior space as a signifier of wider social and political imperatives. This work ranged from the highly contrived sets from popular T.V. soap operas to the domestic interiors built on the Los Alamos nuclear test site.
