For this offsite project of Café Gallery Projects London, a raised platform was built through the densely inhabited household of the artist, functioning as a walkway for visitors, a sculptural system and a concrete space. Maintaining its level and negotiating and framing objects and people; the platform creates unusual proximities, manipulating the comparative levels of display of ‘the museum’ content. Occupants and visitors discuss their relative status, within the still functioning spaces; bringing into play conflicting and contradictory power relations. The installation serves as a ‘social experiment’ to see which prevails – visitor or intruder. Fran Cottell is an artist and senior lecturer at Camberwell College of Arts. Photography: Terry Watts.
