Ackroyd and Harvey’s first collaborative work in England was developed and created over the month of July. The exterior of a derelict house became the focus of their attention, and the idea of ‘bringing the house back to life’ with a living skin of grass presented them with the challenge of growing the front façade of the Victorian property in the ‘avenues’ area of Hull.
“On the last night of the exhibition screens over the upstairs windows held, briefly, projections of transparencies of the interior and of parts of the house that it was impossible to access, and images of the paintings of Pixie Berkowitz brought to light by her nephew.”Ackroyd and Harvey
