Project: Hotel Delle Nazioni
Date: 2003
Location: Jesolo Lido, Venice

I was appointed as artist/curator of a project to design a floor of nine themed rooms in the Hotel Delle Nazioni in Jesolo Lido, Venice. I selected six other artists from the UK, Germany, Italy, and Turkey with the assistance of Dominic Berning Fine Art in London and Marco Calzavara, the hotel owner.

In the room I designed, the bed was constructed from a wrecked pier washed up as drift. Working only with the hot end of the colour spectrum, the interior became the expression of a permanently hot August day. The other images featured here show rooms from Jane Watt, Martin Richman, and Leo.

The rooms were available for hire to tourists and were finally decommissioned in 2010.
