About

In Spring 2014 thirteen artists occupied and developed work in response to 20,000 sqf of a deserted office floor in East India Dock, London, under the banner of HOUSERULES.

A space for spontaneous experimentation was created for both artists and audience.

HOUSERULES has since continued, unsubscribed to a fixed location, as a nomadic occurrence appearing in unexpected places.

HOUSERULES embraces indeterminacy; bringing, but also questioning, freedom, action and play into the context of a given space. Each particular location will come with its own set of ‘house rules’ and will be the starting point for each artist’s response through his or her own artistic ‘lens’.

HOUSERULES invites artists from various disciplines to contribute. The individual works take on a variety of media, including dance/movement, film, installation, sculpture, written/spoken word and sound, all coming together to form a temporary situation of creative energy.
