Grayson Perry’s Dream House
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.
