Denis Severs House (London)

  • image

Dennis Severs' House, 18 Folgate Street - a Georgian terrace in Spitalfields, London - England defies a singular definition, having been described as a living museum, work of art, post-materialist project, or even a poetic interpretation of history. Dennis Severs was born in 1944 and from Southern California. His passion for what he called 'English light' drew him to London, and he made his home in the dilapidated property in 1979. His way of making a home was a unique and highly personal endeavour. He wrote, I worked inside out to create what turned out to be a collection of atmospheres: moods that harbour the light and the spirit of various ages. Each of the ten rooms in the house evokes its own period of history, brought alive through sight, smell, and a deliberate sense of precariousness, that work within 'the space between'.
