The Summer House Interventions Sharon Campbell and Lauren Sagar2011
On completing The Summerhouse in 2010, Sharon Campbell was drawn to the potential for what could happen in the glasshouse itself, seeing it as a context for experimenting with installation ideas. Sharon in collaboration with Lauren Sagar, curated a series of interventions within The Summerhouse, where the positive responses of the staff at the hospital informed the development of the programme.
The programme included live performance from cellist and performer Li Lu and an installation of stacked rolls of bed-sheets by artist Annie Harrison. There were further playful interventions from the artists themselves such as filling the glass structure with a multitude of white origami paper birds and a mass of huge white spherical balloons.
