The Living Room by The Light Surgeons
Excavating individuality in a world of flat-packed living

Wednesday 8 September - Sunday 17 October

The Living Room, a specially commissioned exhibition, explores peoples’ individuality through the customisation of their living spaces.

The Living Room goes behind closed doors and net curtains to reveal the cultural richness of our domestic design tastes. It offers a fresh take on the nation’s current fascination with home makeover TV programmes.

Visionary artists and designers, The Light Surgeons, weave the personal stories of peoples’ homes by creating a unique mixture of video, print work, photography and sound design.

The Lightsurgeons exciting video realism project THE LIVING ROOM invites London based artists to enhance their skills in documentary-style film-making. The Living Room will uncover peoples homes and personal tastes, habits and cultures. We are looking for volunteers to help produce the material for this gallery exhibition and a live audio-visual performance.

This specially commissioned exhibition is an anthropological study that aims to excavate our fragmented identities from the interiors and artefacts in our urban dwellings. Using an innovative four-camera set up, it draws on local peoples stories through its investigative, documentary approach and a series of out-reach workshops. The exhibition will close with a one-off live performance drawing on themes of cultural identity and the home. We are also looking to tour this piece nationally.

We need people to work on the following areas:
-Research
-Filming
-Post-production
-Gallery installation set-up
-Live performance

Please note this is unpaid.
