The Gilt and the Gingerbread
The National Trust’s Clandon Park house is in the stages of being rebuilt and restored after a fire destroyed almost all of the interior in April 2015. As with all things covered, as this now is (cocooned and wrapped Christo-like with over 32 miles of white protective sheeting), it has become an enigma, another thing entirely, so far removed from a house or a home. Like a doll’s house it offers only a frontality that is difficult to access physically and psychologically. This project questions what is hidden beneath this huge dust sheet historically, what is to be revealed in its rebirth and the difficulties of negotiating this new-found knowledge.
