‘Open for business’

Official launch and promotion of ‘Tidal Properties Ltd’: a property development company whose main aim is to regenerate the recently discovered community of houses in the walls of Maryport Harbour. The homes are accessible only at low tide and will be available for purchase throughout the duration of normal business hours as dictated by the politics of a given location i.e. Senhouse St, Maryport. The recently discovered houses, (once home to a community of boat people) when renovated will suit first time buyers or investors looking for a second income.

From the super-imposition of full-scale maps onto the landscape and displacing feral pigeons to the engagement of people under threat of enforced displacement, William Titley’s practice centres around spatial exploration.

Operating in public places, his interventions and performances are strategically planned before execution and often involve the negotiation of community space.
