Dennis Severs' House - The Documentary

'My' Experience in Dennis Severs' House - 18 Folgate Street

A tour into a time capsule, Dennis Severs' House - Severs' an artist who allowed visitor's imaginations as a canvas, enabled them to paint these stories in the mind that led to our own individual representations. For his own personal enjoyment and his passion, he reinvents the Jervis' - a Huguenot silkmaster family whom he experienced and shared occupation with has been captured within the house, all objects specifically placed and positioned - framed and each telling it's own story. A silent journey into each room allowed one to stimulate the senses in every room.

I entered every room, the experience allowed me to engage with the stories that were created in my own mind, the temperature changed so my mood changed and with it the arranged objects placed themselves together that began to unravel my own interpretation of what happened there. The smells and sounds were distinctive and these made me feel like I was really actually there...

Definately worth visiting .. it is very different to the usual museum or exhibition - you're not standing behind a glass case where stories of objects are at risk, in this type of museum it is impossible

  ''You either see it, or you don't''

It postulates a past, a memory’
