Fran Cottell: The House Projects

Artist Book, 2021


Over the last twenty years Fran Cottell has produced a series of increasingly provocative live installations displaying the contents, visitors and occupants of her house in Greenwich as offsite projects for CGPLondon, (now Southwark Park Galleries 2001-11) and Raven Row (56 Artillery Lane 2017). Through substantial visual documentation, this book traces key ideas behind Fran Cottell’s House Projects, 2001-2017 (ongoing). Introduced by the artist’s own reflective account of producing these interventions, the book also includes responses from visitors and collaborators as well as family members and an essay by Katy Deepwell.
