Residents of Balfron Tower empowered by Simon Terrill’s photographic representation

The Balfron Tower in Tower Hamlets, London is soon to become part of a large scale artistic project courtesy of artist-in-residence, Simon Terrill. Formerly featured in the Oasis music video for Morning Glory and British horror film 28 Days Later, the Brutalist tower has become a solid figure in the local community’s architectural history.

On 18th November, artist Simon Terrill will undertake a colossal photographic project with the residents of the Balfron Tower, putting the building’s public image back into the hands of its inhabitants. For The Balfron Shoot, Terrill will arrange the scene with lights, a camera, catering and a soundtrack and encourage the residents to come out onto their balconies, into windows or out on the ground and present themselves and their home in whatever what they see fit.

A mural-sized photographic image of the event will be exhibited at the Nunnery Gallery, Bow Road in January 2011.
