Please Disturb Me

Installation at The Great Eastern Hotel [London, UK]

(February 2001)

press release:

Please Disturb Me is an exhibition within the Great Eastern Hotel, situated in the heart of the City of London. Six artists were each given a room and invited to spend a weekend together at the hotel. The purpose of this stay was for the artists to, individually and collectively immerse themselves within the environment and workings of the Victorian hotel.

The artists will return to install works within the rooms and public spaces. The rooms will be available for guests to stay in during the week and available for public viewing at the weekends. Hotels the world over, elicit very intense emotions, those relating to travel, identity, anonymity, and sexuality. The six London based artists in Please Disturb Me have been chosen to explore these relationships and respond to the notions of private and public with respect to the building, guests, visitors and staff.
