Having been working together since 2012, in January 2015 artists Toby Lloyd and Andrew Wilson re-located from Newcastle upon Tyne to be the first occupants of Artist House 45, a long-term live/work artist residency developed by East Street Arts in a traditional two-bedroom, back-to-back home in the residential area of Beeston, South Leeds. Using this locus as a springboard for creative engagement Lloyd & Wilson discuss their enduring interest in the social dynamics of the public house, the overlapping roles of spectator and participant and the possibilities of shared space for unpicking social boundaries.
