The cellar at the Queen of Hungary

The Queen of Hungary is owned by an Atmospheric chemist and his Minnesotan wife who incredibly kindly let me use their home for site-specific installations.
It is a medieval weavers' hall whose cellar dates back to medieval times, and has original earth floors and flinty walls. The steel plate at the back is pitted with bullet holes from its time as a target for a Boys' Brigade in WW2.
Ally Wallace showed a massive polythene sheet filled with air by a circulating fan that bulged in waves like a giant larva.
Gayle Chong Kwan projected a video she'd made woith a local line-dancing club with the staccato sound of tapping feet like gunfire.
