Things for Homes / Homes for Things 
2018 - 
Homes for Things / Things for Homes is a long term project with TACO! in Thamesmead, London around sculpture and  the home. Evolving from a simple idea to give sculptures to local people in Thamesmead to live with, it has developed into long conversations around sculpture and the social life of objects. Why is it that so few people have what we might call sculpture in their homes? Do our objects become domesticated? Does sculpture need a public? What is it that makes something sculpture or sculptural?

The project has resulted in a series of five 30min audio works for radio broadcast, a series of twelve sculpture given to people and a an artist book to be published in 2022.

Malmö Monument
2022
Congratulations! For the next month you are the custodian of Malmö Monument # 01 (01-05). After one month has past, you must choose somebody else to be the next custodian and give them the sculpture. They in turn will look after the sculpture in their home, until it is their turn to choose another custodian.

The Malmö Monument is a series of five small peripatetic, or nomadic public sculptures moving around people’s homes in Malmö. Each sculpture is a copy of an original that was made collectively during a workshop in May 2022. Each one is slightly different. You can use the sculpture as you like in your own home. The only rule is the you must care for the sculpture, and when it is time, to choose another custodian who will honour this agreement to care for the sculpture, and then pass it on. We hope that the sculpture continues to tour around Malmö for years to come as a collectively owned public sculpture.

The sculpture comes in a box with these instructions. Please pass these on the the next custodian. We would also like you to send us a photo of it inside your home once it finds its place. Please send as good resolution photograph as you ca,n to artist James Prevett who initiated the project. The photos will be added to a growing archive of all the places the sculptures have been housed and looked after.

Conversations Pieces
With Annie May Demoxay
2021
A series of five sound works interweaving interview and archive sound to explore sculpture in the home. Each episode takes interviews with people in their home about the things they keep around them. These are woven together with excepts of Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth to explore our very human responses to matter and material. Conversation Pieces are made by James Prevett and Annie May Demozay for radio broadcast and form part of Prevett’s larger project Things for Homes / Homes for Things commissioned by TACO! in Thamesmead, London.

Can be listened to on RTM every Thursday in January  2022 and on Radiophrenia in February 2022.
