On October 7th 1930, at his National Laboratory of Psychical Research, Harry Price held a séance with Eileen Garrett. Price hoped to make contact with the deceased Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Instead Flight Lieutenant Irwin of the R101 'came through'. The R101 had crashed in flames on October 5 th 1930 near Beauvais, France on its maiden overseas flight to India. During the séance Irwin revealed technical and mechanical information about the crash that Garrett could not have known. This séance was to become infamous as the 'R101 séance'. In '13 Roland Gardens' Eileen Garrett's daughter Eileen Coly talks about Garrett's R101 séance and living above the Harry Price Laboratory at 13 Roland Gardens, London.
In February 1931 Harry Price moved his laboratory from 16 Queensbury Place to the basement of 13 Roland Gardens, South Kensington. The first floor of this building was already occupied by Eileen Garrett and her daughter (now Eileen Coly).
The Irish trance medium Eileen Garrett (1893-1970) founded the publishing house Creative Age Press in 1941 and the Parapsychology Foundation in 1951 (both in New York).
'13 Roland Gardens' was first screened in 'Seeing is Believing' at the Photographers' Gallery, London in 2007 where it was exhibited alongside archival photographs of mediumistic phenomena from the collection of the psychical researcher Harry Price, Senate House, University of London.
Susan MacWilliam has been selected to represent Northern Ireland, with a solo exhibition, at the Venice Biennale of Art 2009.
Open: Tuesdays to Fridays - 10.30am to 5.30pm and Saturdays - 1pm - 4pm
