Plymouth Market slide work

The Pannier Market is a 1950’s grade II listed building in Plymouth, the U.K. In a selected market stall four slide carousels projected 4 different sites of 1950’s and 60’s architecture that explored the spaces of religion, home and retail in three different European locations. The locations include the church of the Ascension, Crownhill Plymouth 1968, the church of St. Bernadette de Banlay (Nevers, France by Claude Parent and Paul Virilio architects in 1966); the Apollo Pavilion (in Peterlee, UK, also from 1966 designed by Victor Pasmore) and the Pannier Market, Plymouth (designed by Paul Pearn and Ken Bingham and opened in 1959).

This installation was part of fig-futures, supported by the Arts Council England, Art Fund, and Outset Contemporary Art Fund, and follows the major project fig-2 in which 50 projects were presented across 50 weeks at the ICA Studio, Institute of Contemporary Arts, London in 2015.
