This is one part of a site-specific commission. Curran responded to the particular architecture of the building where the work is sited, and chose to work with the original eighteenth century section of the building which still retains traces of its former use as a family home. Despite modernisation, the rooms preserve an intimacy with uneven walls, original sash windows and the suggestion of the Georgian fireplace mantelpieces which were removed. The shapes in this work are derived from a process of folding forms, building up planes of colour through collage. This method embodies a sense of layering that seeks to mimic the historical changes within the space itself.
