‘In Residence’ was a temporary public art project commissioned by the Liverpool Biennial in the UK. An initial project of their ‘On The Street’ program, which is an ongoing project to revive the neighbourhood of Anfield by engaging local communities with the arts.
Working with local young people, I created a site-specific video installation that imagines them inside these locked and boarded up houses. We removed the metal sheets that have largely replaced windows in that area, and converted the houses into temporary sources of light, by installing synchronized video projectors inside 5 separate houses on the same block.
The music that accompanies this video is by the incredibly talented Amiina (used with permission).
‘In Residence’ won the Celeste Prize 2010 for Video.
