The Winch Room is a stunning exhibition space at TAP. Built in Victorian times, the room is nearly 9 metres high and contains a capped well over which the original Victorian winching system still impressively hangs. It was used as office spaces for many years - after which it stood derelict for 10 years.
Temporary Arts Project, previously know as CoExist Arts, moved in during 2009 with the help of Metal, Essex and Suffolk Water, EEDA, Southend Borough Council and Arts Council England.
As the only an artist run project space in Southend, TAP now acts as a cultural hub for artist led activity in the area. The Winch Room has brought artists such as Phyllida Barlow, Chloe Brooks, Hayley Lock and David Murphy (to name a few) to Southend to make site-specific works especially for this amazing room.
This project was instigated to celebrate the building we love so dearly and the artists resident there.
This is a 3.5 times scale model, within the beach hut.
