Set in an inhabited East London council flat, Maison Touchard is a project space informed by the myriad roles and connotations associated with the concept of Home. Home as a site of production and metamorphosis: a dream factory, a purgatory, a dinner party; a costume closet, an archive, a prison. It is a play-pen for curatorial and artistic experimentation wherein notions of the quotidian, the domestic, and the local are probed in relation to broader ideological concerns of urban geography, architecture, and social space.
Founded in 2019 by Melanie Scheiner and Clémentine Proby, Maison Touchard embraces the spirit of sustainability and community bound up in the ethos of the ‘home-made’. All guests are welcome.
Open Saturday & Saturday 12-6pm and by appointment (during exhibitions)
