Patrick Lowry American Dream


Lowry will be fabricating a full -sized replica of the façade and garden of a 1950s American suburban home, complete with a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air. American Dream is a work conceived as a response and comment on the current economic crisis and our consumption-driven economy, by looking back and celebrating the ‘American Dream' that was craved and consumed by the masses. There will screen-prints of housing plans and promotional material and ‘In The Suburbs' a 1957 promotional film extolling 1950s suburbanites as citizens and consumers. It is proposed that the lawn will become a stage for discussion and events associated with the themes, particularly during Golowan, Penzance's annual festival.
