You are invited to enter The Surreal House , a mysterious dwelling infused with subjectivity and desire.
Step inside a labyrinth of chambers, designed by acclaimed young architects Carmody Groarke, and experience The Surreal House - its haunted rooms, delirious forms, blasted architecture and cinematic dreamscapes - featuring a host of artists, architects and film makers including Salvador Dali , Marcel Duchamp , Alberto Giacometti , René Magritte , Man Ray , Joseph Cornell and Maya Deren through to more contemporary figures, among them; Rebecca Horn , Edward Kienholz and Rem Koolhaas .
At times enchanting, playful and at others, deeply disquieting, The Surreal House is a dwelling that is essentially everything that the rational, functional Modernist house is not.
Talks, performances and artists’ film in the Gallery every Thursday until 10pm. Barbican Gallery Surreal House ticket holders for the 9th Sept can buy a ticket to Louise Bourgeois: The Spider, the Mistress and the Tangerine (9 Sept, 8.45pm) in Cinema 1 for £6
