Press Information
Join us after the Christmas break as we launch House Taken Over.

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 two–screen video On Translation.
