Remember Rachel Whitread’s ‘House’?
Concrete cast of an East London terrace. 193 Grove Road.
Made in 1993, demolished 1994.
Things turned strange in there:
fireplaces bulged from the walls.
I lived there once, winter of 1993.
It was peaceful. No-body missed me.
Nothing to look out at.
No-one could look in.
Before the bull-dozers came, I took some photographs.
That was my room.
See my fingers pushing holes through the window.
