Fran Cottell, Forced Entry, 2017


Forced Entry is an installation that is built into the artist’s home, a former cemetery lodge in Greenwich. It is the fifth in a series begun in 2001.


The social concerns of this project shift between the relative values of order/disorder and status of the visitors and the inhabitants. This new architectural intervention provides viewing platforms which counter distance with proximity. The artist’s family and friends remain active in the house.



Fran Cottell is an artist producing installations, public interventions and performance since the 1970s; working collaboratively and individually, on social, feminist, environmental and domestic artworks, and curatorial projects. Fran is a Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at Camberwell College of Arts.


Previous installations within her home were produced in collaboration with the artist-run

gallery and charity: CGPLondon.



An e-book documenting this series of installations, entitled 'House from Display to BACK to FRONT', published by KT Press, is available to view in Raven Row.
