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.
