For Grayson Perry's Essex house, the only way was 'bonkers as possible'
At the end of a dirt track in Wrabness, where Essex dissolves into the muddy flats of the river Stour, a silvery pregnant woman hovers above a field, gleaming in the afternoon sunshine. Next to her floats a wheel, a big ceramic egg and a mysterious ...

At the end of a dirt track in Wrabness, where Essex dissolves into the muddy flats of the river Stour, a silvery pregnant woman hovers above a field, gleaming in the afternoon sunshine. They are the crowning features of the strangest roofline in Essex , marching atop one of the weirdest houses ever built in the country. Half medieval stave church, half Thai wat, its gleaming golden rooftops step up in successively larger segments, like the innards of a matryoshka doll huddling together in the field. “It’s the most personal public work I’ve ever made,” says Perry, today in plainclothes, looking more like a scarecrow fresh from the field than his glossy alter ego Claire. ” In his elaborate narrative, told in an epic poem that comes in a little publication when you rent the house (from £700 for three nights), the building is a mausoleum to a fictional Essex woman, Julie May Cope, built by her husband when she died... The deadly scooter now hangs in the living room, like a votive offering, its headlights illuminating some of the pots and tapestries that tell the life story of Julie in a series of acts throughout the house – from her first marriage in Basildon...
One person rescued from the home told workers about the other people inside, saying the 12 were all connected to two families. The house was in Wimberley Valley, an area known for its bed-and-breakfast inns and rental weekend cottages. Authorities have confirmed one death from the flooding. It's unclear if the person who died was in the home swept away by the river. Texas Governor Greg Abbott says the damage caused by the flash-flooding is "absolutely devastating". The governor flew over parts of the Blanco River, a day after heavy rains pushed the river out of its banks. At a news conference, Mr Abbott says the damage he saw was "absolutely massive" from the storms' "relentless tsunami-type power". He added 24 counties to his state disaster declaration, bringing the total to 37 counties in mostly the eastern half of the state.
