RICHARD WOODS: HOLIDAY HOME (WHITE CITY)
UNTIL 18 NOVEMBER
ZONE 8 – WHITE CITY + OLYMPIA
BBC WHITE CITY
HOLIDAY HOME (WHITE CITY) is part of a series of house-shaped identical sculptures called HOLIDAY HOMES. They are called holiday homes because they are always temporally installed. Each sculpture is exactly the same size, but they are also all different colours. The idea behind the series is to locate the identical houses in very different locations – the idea being that each location is affected in a different way by the introduction of the house sculpture. HOLIDAY HOME (WHITE CITY) is presented with the generous support of Stanhope Plc.
“I‘m very enthusiastic about showing the house in White City Pl as the scale and contemporary feel of the office buildings around it will make the small house appear even smaller and more traditional in style. I hope in the years to come to take the HOLIDAY HOME series on a travel around the world, allowing the sculptures to temporally sit in deserts and jungles, dense urban streets and quiet country lanes, interior and exterior spaces. I feel the more locations it can sit within, the more profound the artwork can become.” – Richard Woods
