A commissioned work by artist John Frankland.

John Frankland's work hovers between architecture and sculpture. Frankland's practice deconstructs the material world paring it down to its elemental forms. The viewer is often placed in the ambiguous position between participation and spectating. His recent 'Boulders' in Shoreditch Park and Mabley Green have challenged this concept further by actively encouraging their use for climbing.

Frankland has created 'Wall' for art house foundation in the upstairs gallery of art house. Viewers will find the space subtley altered. Duchamp stated that it is the choice of object that is the creative act, and that concept is more important than the resulting image. Frankland re plastered and re painted the gallery wall - the action being as much a part of the work as the finished piece. 'Wall' calls into question our opinions about what art might be, whilst encouraging the viewer to take a closer look into their surroundings.
