House Taken Over is the culmination of a year-long project at BalinHouseProjects (BHP). BHP is an artist-run, not-for-profit space by Eduardo Padilha at his flat in Balin House, Tabard Gardens North Estate. Eduardo Padilha and Harold Offeh have been hosting a series of lunches in Eduardo’s flat and workshops at Tate Exchange to consider the home as a site for artistic practice, the point at which domestic and public worlds collide, and art as a social tool.

The book is edited by Jes Fernie, who was invited to be writer-in-residence at BHP, and includes an experimental text by Holly Corfield Carr; interviews with Martin Cordiano on his installation in Balin House, and Russian theatre director Ada Mukhina about living with art; and texts by Harold Offeh and Lorena Muñoz-Alonso. The book is designed by Sarah Boris.

The evening will include an installation of Martin Cordiano’s On Translation.

Book Launch will take place at Matt’s Gallery on Thursday the 10th January 2019

from 6 to 9 pm

Matt’s Gallery: 92 Webster Road, London SE16 4DF
