study for fifteen painters and prepared house
Watford House, 2016
The façade of Watford House was painted white in 1 day by 15 painters wearing white as a durational performance, recorded for future video installation to include music based on John Cage’s compositions for prepared piano. The house was stripped back to bare timber in preparation. This took 2 years.
13 artists and local residents volunteered to perform with local expert, professional house painter Ian Fraser.
