An exhibition of my research at East Street Arts, Convention House, Leeds.
Launch 5th August 5-8pm
Open 6-10th August 1-4pm
Moving in and out, or staying in bed investigates artist-led housing through written work and collaborative mapping. For the past three years Jon Orlek has researched Artist House 45, an artist live/work project located in a back-to-back terraced house in Beeston, South Leeds.
The structure of the exhibition reflects the multiple ethnographic positions he has adopted in relation to this project, through a process of moving in and out. It demonstrates how embedded and collaborative research has been used to critically consider Artist House 45 both as a socially-engaged artwork and functioning domestic space. Moving in and out, or staying in bed also treats ‘the exhibition’ as a productive site for this ongoing research.
