Abstract

5 x 1 is a two screen film by Shona Illingworth, which takes its name from the proportion of the prison cells inhabited by the prisoners serving life sentences at HMP Gartree, who feature in the work. 5 x 1 was commissioned by Rideout for the Creative Prison Project, a project which combined the design expertise and vision of internationally renowned Alsop architects with the critically engaged practices of artists Shona Illingworth and Jonathan Ford, and the direct experience of staff and life prisoners within a maximum security prison, to design and create a powerful and challenging exhibition, design propositions, series of artworks and publications as a means to generate debate around pressing contemporary issues of the place and role of custody within society.
