Inspiration: Stay Exhibition, London

Inspiration: Stay Exhibition, London
Guy Brighton
  • 13 july 2005

The Great Eastern Hotel this week has an exhibition called Stay where 11 artists have taken up residence, transforming the rooms and spaces into artworks inspired by a weekend stay in the hotel.

One guest bedroom becomes a nuclear fall-out shelter (modeled on ‘Protect and Survive’ guidelines from the 1980’s) with the artist, Richard Dedomenici, occupying a refuge made from doors and mattresses and surviving on economy baked beans and rationed water. An installation by Giovanna Maria Casetta entices visitors to look through a bedroom spy hole, where they will be seduced by a stranger in a baby-doll nightie. Also, catch the shaggy dog as she meanders through the hotel looking for food, sex and sleep in an installation by Tess Glanville.
