For its 8th year, HOUSE 2016 will be commissioning new works in response to the curatorial theme ofHome, HOUSE Curator and Director of Photoworks, Celia Davies explains; ‘This year, HOUSE is interested in ‘Home’ as a sense of place and what it means for us; about the constructed private spaces we create in relation to society and our relationship to the technological, physical and political landscapes that surround us. ‘For some ‘Home’ is just a physical dwelling, for others it signifies where we root our daily lives, or a direct reflection of our identity. ‘Home’ can also be a concept, a locator in our mind-set that can make us feel secure, or at times uneasy.

Turner Prize winner Gillian Wearing is the HOUSE 2016 Invited Artist!

The project is one of the largest collaborative films ever, with contributions from all over the world, read more at yourviewsfilm.com
