Iain Baxter& reconfigured his seminal work ‘Bagged Place’ from 1966, in ‘Rebecca’s Flat’ on the top floor of 56 Artillery Lane. ‘Rebecca’s Flat’ is a remarkable period apartment which was given to Raven Row, a non-profit contemporary art exhibition centre, by her family after she passed away.
Wrapping the whole flat and everything it holds in plastic and preserving it how it was before Rebecca Levy died, Baxter&’s installation seems to have set up a mournful yet curiously clean effect. As one of the founders of conceptual art Baxter created a place in which time seems to has stopped. Once loved and personal things are now wrapped in plastic, preserved and presented to the public.
