This is our third year of the Apartment project.
Currently used as art studios, the former dwelling based in Bow, East London will be transformed back to its original function as an apartment for the duration of the show. We will look at how the space can be informed by the artwork displayed, recalling the missing presence of a former tenant, as well as capturing a glimpse of the domestic condition.
