The Rise and Fall of Jimmy Watts is the winner of HEART OF GLASS open submission exhibition
  

“The Rise and Fall of Jimmy Watts”, an installation by artist Clarisse D’Arcimoles produced in collaboration with CRA MA Campbell Drake was announced as the winner of this year’s HEART OF GLASS open submission exhibition.

A 571-flats council estate has just been destroyed in Caledonian Road, North London. Up until the very last days before demolition, 31 families still called the Market Estate their home. This place, built around a old clock tower, dated back to the 1960s: some of its residents had been in there for over 40 years.

“The Rise and Fall”, an installation that faithfully and meticulously re-creates within 20 Hoxton gallery the kitchen belonging to Jimmy Watts, the oldest resident of the Market Estate in Holloway that was demolished in March 2010.

A project by Clarisse d’Arcimoles in collaboration with Campbell Drake
