Grayson Perry’s Dream House

Isis Town and Country - - Television -

Sun­day, ABC, 10pm

Turner prize win­ner Grayson Perry is an English artist known mainly for his ce­ramic vases and cross-dress­ing. But tonight’s show is about nei­ther of th­ese sig­nif­i­cant as­pects of the artist’s life. This, in­stead, charts the cre­ation of Perry’s riski­est and most per­sonal pub­lic art­work of his ca­reer to date: a lov­ing trib­ute and cel­e­bra­tion of his home­land of Es­sex in­spired by his life and the peo­ple he grew up among. The house it­self is a sight to be­hold, dec­o­rated ex­ter­nally in gold, green, white and red, and in­ter­est­ingly, Perry says it is a mon­u­ment to what he calls “thwarted fe­male in­tel­li­gence”. You need to see it to be­lieve it, so tune in.
