Locations used: Tunbridge Wells, Kings Hill
Artist Grayson Perry comes to Tunbridge Wells to explore the tastes of the British Middle Classes for the second episode of ‘The Best Possible Taste’, using his discoveries of the area as inspiration for a work of art.
During the series, Grayson Perry surrounds himself with people across the social spectrum as he tries to get to grips with society’s differing takes on taste. In this episode he seeks to explore the taste obsessions of the modern middle class person, including vintage furniture, original art and organic food.
He starts this mission in Kings Hill before visiting Tunbridge Wells, a town known for its middle class residents.
Using his experiences as inspiration, Perry creates a set of six tapestries from his findings, two for each of the classes. He hopes that it will tell a story of British class mobility in the 21st Century. In conclusion to each episode, contributors are invited to view his creations.
The best possible taste airs on Tuesday 12th June 2012 on Channel 4 at 22.00.
