ArtHouses Inverted launched on 18th May 2020 and artworks became available day-by-day through the week, on the Arthouses Inverted webpage. See my work on the 'Monday' tab.
ArtHouses is a project in which artists are invited into peoples homes to share their work with audiences. This year ArtHouses is inverted, asking artists to share works with audiences who host them in their homes through the internet.
Inversion requires a renegotiation with the things around us, and a rethinking of relationships with the places where we live, how we communicate with people and how we work. Like many others, artists' economies have been affected, and the networks of our ecologies disrupted - economy and ecology both words that have their eco-roots in the ancient greek word oikos, the home. This inverted version of ArtHouses presents a situation for artists to produce work at a time when we are being asked to stay in our homes and we are recalibrating our ways of working to that.
ArtHouses INVERTED is a project designed and produced by Sophie Buxton and Rob Smith.
