More about Beecholme

Beecholme is also the first postwar "mixed development" housing scheme in Hackney, with a mixture of houses and flats with the taller block having five storeys and containing one-bedroom and bedsit accommodation. It is featured in Volume 15 of Hackney History and was the site of Beecholme House, the family home of Maj. John André (d. 1780), who was executed as a British spy in the American War of Independence.

Project supported by: Galerie Rabouan-Moussian, Paris

"With The London Project, I wanted to experiment with the gallery space, its dimensions, its construction materials and it's vernacular architecture. This exhibition aims to develop an opposition by setting up a symbolic structure, here the roof, deprived of its inherent use and made out of brand new construction wood, to the space of the gallery that give evidence of its past activity. This structure, is the result of months of reflexion around the space of Vulpes Vulpes gallery, many aspects and shapes have been considered, to come off with this "roof". Therefore I intend by occulting most of the space, to evoque it, by the use of straight thin slits, cut out of the "roof". This method of "re-reading" the space, is recurent in my work, which allows me not to have a studio but to move. As each location is unique, and has its own particular kind of material,! dimension and light, each installation is therefore unique."
