Produced on the occasion of Alex Frost’s 2015 residency and exhibition at Flat Time House. An exhibition of new mixed media sculptures and drawings that use and manipulate motifs relating to the home and domesticity. A reflexive exercise, these works have been made whilst living and working in a home, gallery and archive. They have developed out of an investigation into the role of artists within a community, and the way in which the living conditions of artists have been politicised through the current culture of property speculation, and property guardianship programmes in particular. Alex’s work is made not with any critical distance but rather from a conflicted and implicated position.
