In this strange house... 2012An exhibition inspired by the writing of Edward Bulwer-Lytton and the in-house collection of New Art Gallery Walsall.
The exhibition consisted of 46 black and white prints, a performance video, sculpture, a hand drawn laser animation and 3 youtube playlists.
The prints are digital reworkings of every piece in the collection that has a supernatural element. They are individually coupled with a line of prose taken from a ghost story written by myself and Edward Wakefield using the language and vocabulary of Bulwer-Lytton's short story The House and the Brain.
The sculptures; a 7 meter tall wooden structure and an elevated child's bed are both inspired by Bulwer-Lyttons novel Paul Clifford, which begins with the often mocked and parodied phrase 'It was a dark and stormy night...'
