House Call, November 2014

On 29th November we did a House Call at Mandy Roberts’ house in Norwich. After tea and cake we spent an hour investigating her house and devising a piece of work, which we then shared with each other.

In the dining room, Holly Rumble used a steel bucket and a coffee grinder to make a looped sound piece, which played as she invited the others to select a paper rubbing of a texture in the house and find its source.

John Boursnell made a short table top performance using text from Shock of the New, and various objects standing in for the art figures mentioned in the text.

Mandy Roberts drew around stains in the plaster and framed them with embroidery hoops, placed small objects into cracks in the wall, and made a short video investigating larger cracks in the stairwell.

In the stairs, Holly Bodmer traced the pattern on the wallpaper to make a stair carpet for the house.

In the front room, Kate Hodges assembled an assortment of tiny objects on a turntable, using the house light and a magnifying glass to create a miniature spotlight.
