I would like to invite you to an exhibition that I initiated at The Geffrye Musuem of the Home.
A Street Seen: the residents of Westbury Road
A collaboration between local artist Gabriela Schutz, photographer Andrew Buurman, and the residents of Westbury Road, Bounds Green,documents the homes, gardens and people on a typical London street.
The six metre long panoramic drawing shows a row of near-identical Victorian houses on the road Gabriela lives on. The diversity of residents who live there is revealed in Andrew Buurman’s photographs. Taken over two years, they reveal the residents in their back gardens – spaces invisible from the street, as varied as the house fronts are regular.
Gabriela Schutz is an artist who has exhibited in galleries in London, Israel and Europe and is shortlisted for the 2015 Jerwood Drawing Prize. www.gabrielaschutz.com
Andrew Buurman is a photographer who has exhibited in the UK and the States, won a World Press Award and published in many international newspapers and magazines. www.buurman.co.uk
The Geffrye explores the home from 1600 to the present day. Evocative displays of London, middle-class living rooms and gardens illustrate homes and home life through the centuries, reflecting changes in society, behaviour, style and taste. The museum is set in Grade 1 listed, 18th century almshouse buildings surrounded by gardens in Hoxton, East London. www.geffrye-museum.org.uk
