This is the first public iteration of a video that will be developed over the coming year to be presented publicly in three iterations over the the course of this time in significant public institutions to coincide with the Serpentine Gallery’s John Latham exhibition this year. It will incorporate interviews and sound performances from artists who have had a relationship with the building including: JP Latham - Engineer, John Latham’s son Noa Latham - Philosopher, John Latham’s son Harriet Latham - Dancer and choreographer, John Latham’s granddaughter Barbara Steveni - Artist, John Latham’s ex-partner Anthony Hudek - Original archivist Athanasios Velios - Original archivist Clive Philpot - Original chair of FTHo trustees, long-tiiem friend of John Latham David Toop - Sound artist and collaborator with John Latham Neal White - Artist, friend of John Latham, involved with set up of FTHo Laure Provost - Artist, John Latham’s assistant for five years. Artists is residence at FTHo 2010 Foster Sprag - Artist, John Latham’s assistant Elisa Kay - First curator/director of FTHo Claire Louise Staunton - Previous curator/director of FTHo John Hill - Education officer of FTHo for eight years Mary Vitesse - Previous programme Manager Jo Melvin - Academic, trustee of FTHo Elena Crippa - Curator, trustee of FTHo Alex Frost - Artist, in residence at FTHo 2015. FTHo technician Marc Camile Chaimowicz - Artist, exhibited at FTHo 2016 The work will build upon themes from my previous research projects, the performance made in response to Flat Time House, John & Michael (The Chemical History of a Candle) (2015) and the video interview with stateless artist Gustav Metzger (2015) that examined his formative experiences of art and landscape. It aims to respond to the unusual status of the house as both a heritage site and important contemporary art venue that generates new work informed by Latham’s legacy and work space by answering the research question: How do Flat Time House and John Latham’s creative legacy change audience’s understandings of artist’s working/living spaces as sites of both heritage and ongoing artistic production?
