Why don't we live together?
6.30-8.30pm Friday 22nd (opening event) and 1-4pm Saturdays 23rd & 30th January.
This experiment is part of the 'Modern Mirror' group show at Bread & Jam, 52 Whitbread Rd, Brockley, London SE4 2BE. www.breadandjamwhitbread.wordpress.com
The exhibition takes place in a gutted, soon to be refurbished, Victorian terraced house.
Visitors are invited to help me complete the household chores.
While working, we will dream up imaginary plans to spend the future together.
Where would we live? How would we pay the bills? What would make us happy? What kind of a relationship would it be?
Based on the Pet Shop Boys song 'Why don't we live together?' this experiment offers us alternative life stories... if only for the duration of the washing up.
Chores take 10-20 minutes. When you arrive please add your name to an available slot on the rota outside the kitchen (one visitor only per task). You may choose one of the following:
- Cleaning the insides of the windows
- Washing up
- Making a cuppa for everyone
- Cooking brunch/ afternoon snack
- Pairing up the socks
- Ironing some shirts
- Polishing shoes
- Cleaning the bathroom
- Sweeping and mopping the kitchen
- Popping down the shops to get some biscuits
If you would like to book a slot in advance, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading 'Why don't we live together?' and request a time at least a few hours before you arrive.
