Artist: Leila Houston

An artist based in the East Midlands, my practice explores perception, sensation and expectation through site-responsive installation, film, sound and photography.

Currently focusing on the Frog Island area of Leicester, I am creating a site-responsive and site-specific body of work that investigates the relationship between the former All Saints Brewery site and the commercial landscape of Highcross that faces it.

This work has developed from an interest in exploring Leicester’s history and in recording personal moments of contemplation and imagined narrative that arise from the juxtaposition of regeneration and neglected spaces allowing pockets of wildlife and forgotten history to live alongside the newly built environment.
