The Residence has proudly established itself as a 21st century international commercial and conceptual art venue by East London's historic Victoria Park Village. However, the gallery's history began a few years back as an idea for a palatial d.i.y. museum in an abandoned Victorian mental hospital (squatted in Whitechapel, 2004 as the "Tate Post-Mortem"). It officially unleashed itself as "The Residence" with over 100 exhibitions in a rented shop premises during 2005. Then came its covert takeover of The Verger’s Cottage (St. Mary of Eton Church), haunted home to gallery Director/Artist Ingrid Z. Notice of demolition prompted the gallery to secure a permanent move to its much loved Victoria Park Road where it's now at last rooted at no.229 for many years to come.
The Residence celebrates innovative interdisciplinary forces including painting, video, photography and installation. It undertakes constant review to select relevant and engaging artists of our time.

Why the name THE RESIDENCE?
"I've researched where the gallery concept originated and it was in the homes and cabinets of private collectors, stretching back even furthest to cave dwellings. I am re-visiting the importance of art's connection to the home and how our very notion of "home" and "art" has evolved in tune within the evolution of commerce, media technology and social semiotics. I use my own life as artist/curator/tenant/landlord as example and experimental host of the 21st century art venue."-Ingrid Z

Visitors travelling from abroad can make a reservation at The Residence's private one-bedroom Residential Suite offering self-catering amenities and authentic London living with the privilege of insight to the East End art scene's best kept secrets.

The boutique boasts selections of artist multiples, limited edition publications, and objects of fascination. The Residence is a live structure to be experienced as a whole scenario or to be cherished in its individual objects d’art.
