Jorn Ebner and Monica Ross invite you to a Housewarming in reverse at 138 St. Lawrence Square, Byker NE6 1SU. On this site a row of council flats was demolished in 2008 to make way for the Byker South Redevelopment plan. The scheme has recently been shelved due to the current economic crisis - a situation that reflects the fragility of the social housing sector within society.
Housewarming will take place in open space, unsheltered and probably cold. No house stands on this site now and another may or may not again: the artists imply the history of their private occupation of a flat on this site as the basis to host the sharing of social space.
