Synopsis

The fifth two-part programme for a six-part series about art being commissioned and made for people's homes. Two artists and their chosen "clients" are featured. The two parts are: `Jake and Dinos Chapman meet Justine Frischmann, pop star' (Director: Janet Lee), and `Sam Taylor-Wood meets Alastair Morrison, airline steward' (Director: Flavia Rittner). In the first, brothers Jake and Dinos Chapman create an abnormal child-like mannequin for their client after she has rejected their initial work - a macabre fibreglass wall for her bedroom. In the second, artist Sam Taylor-Wood uses 360 degree photographs taken with a special camera and enlists her client's participation to create one of her Five Revolutionary Seconds installations for his new loft-style apartment.
