False Teeth Awning

A quick survey of Bethan Huws's work suggests that she's an artist who is hard to keep up with. Over the past couple of decades, her work has included architectural interventions (adding floors to otherwise empty galleries), films, sculptures, performances and watercolours – conceptual art with a humanising wit.
In 2009, Huws stencilled the words False Teeth on to the windows of an original seaside shelter in Margate (apparently where TS Eliot wrote some lines from The Waste Land), inviting us to imagine its 26 panes as a pretend set of teeth.
