Channel 4 today released first-look photos of Grayson Perry’s latest project, the subject of Swan’s forthcoming documentary ‘Grayson’s Greatest Design’ (w/t).
Builders have this week removed the scaffolding surrounding the exterior of what Perry describes as a ‘secular chapel’ currently taking shape in Wrabness, Essex. This new project in association with Living Architecture, is dedicated to the memory of a mythical Essex everywoman called ‘Julie’, is still under construction until the end of this year, but will be revealed in full as part of a Channel 4 programme, Grayson’s Great Design (w/t) to air on the channel early in the new year.
The forthcoming programme will follow the year-long project as Grayson seeks inspiration from single mums in Dagenham, hairdressers in Colchester and the landscape and history of Essex. As he works with collaborators FAT architects, local builders and craftspeople to produce it, viewers will see him struggle to bring the project in on time and on budget as he contends with a mixture of marvel and bafflement from local residents.
Grayson’s Greatest Design (w/t) is produced by Joe Evans and directed by Neil Crombie.← Back to the news
