Description

Introduced by artist George Charman, Artichoke House looks at the legacy of Edward James in terms of his contribution to Surrealist architecture and questions what influence and relevance his work holds in relation to contemporary sculpture and architecture. This publication also includes drawings and comment by George Charman on his reimagined design of Artichoke House that was subsequently built and exhibited in the gardens of West Dean College.

Artichoke House brings together two specially commissioned essays; The Pavilions of Xilitla: Professor David Stent, visual arts program leader at West Dean College, and, Edward James and the Poetry of Imagination, Sharon-Michi Kusunoki, former archivist of the Edward James Cultural Archive. Also included is, Both In Progress: Artichoke House and a typology of Sculpture, a conversation between Directors of the Pangaea Sculptors’ Centre, Marsha Bradfield and Lucy Tomlins, and, Notes and Sketches, detailing the working relationship between Architect John Warren and Edward James.
