'Chateaux Double Wide' was a collaborative project hosted by Urara Tsuchiya and Zoe Williams for Glasgow International 2016.
The project operated from the basement of the Avant Garde bar, in the city centre of Glasgow. The Chateaux Double Wide space acted as an amorphous lounge, bar and club for people to use over the festival period and incorporated a series of daytime and evening events. It hosted a changing series of installations, workshops and performances during the week and will became a bar and events space over the weekends.
Tsuchiya and Williams worked closely with a range of artists including; Alice Brooke, Paul Kindersley, Amy Stickland and New Noveta, as well as with producers and musicians Lord Real, Vicky Steiri and the band Ectopia to develop new installation, sound and performative works for the space. The project explored notions of hosting, fashion, sexuality, fantasy and role play through the creation of an intricately crafted and intimate environment.
