Over the last twenty years Fran Cottell has produced a series of increasingly provocative live installations in her house. The House Projects are a series of time based art works that question how to show everyday ephemeral live experiences outside the fixed frame of the art institution in order to preserve life, or rather the breath of ‘aliveness’.
Fran Cottell has been producing performance and installations since the 1970s. In the spirit of an active and lively conversation, her work seeks to challenge fixed hierarchies to produce a dynamic democracy in which everyone changes and exchanges points of view.
Through substantial visual documentation, this book traces key ideas behind Fran Cottell’s House Projects, 2001-2017 (ongoing). Introduced by the artist’s own ref lective account of producing these interventions, the book also includes responses from visitors and collaborators as well as family members and an essay by Katy Deepwell.
