In May 2018 the Brgy South Kensington book launched at the Live Art Development Agency (LADA) in London. I delivered my experience as one of the artists which formed part of the book launch.
In January 2017 a week-long 24/7 durational performance art event, Brgy. South Kensington, took place in a three-bedroom house, showcasing 10 international artists living and working together and live-streamed on Youtube.
This publication encapsulates the performance art project curated by Vittoria Bonifati, Jeth Reyes and Linda Rocco as part of _inventory Platform, in collaboration with and published by My Parent’s House. The book is designed by Giandomenico Carpentieri and generously supported by Fondazione Dino ed Ernesta Santarelli.
Contributors: Erik Arazi, Rhine Bernardino, Matthew Harrison-Lord, Rowland Hill, Luli Perez, Sara Sassanelli, Jack Sheen, the Uncollective and Natalie Wearden. With a commissioned film by CRUDOSTUDIO.
The publication was launched at LADA on 18th May 2018 and is available to buy on Unbound.

Over 200 participants were engaged in Duvet Conversations during Barangy – a 24/7 open residency in London in January 2017. The invitation for the audience is to have an open conversation; I am a stranger and I am willing to listen and share my histories too.
“sharing pillow-talks styled stories with Matthew Harrison Lord… No one could question the fact that Barangay was indeed an extraordinary and stimulating experience… You enter in a village with your own story, you meet people with their owns and you end up sharing more than you ever did with so-called strangers.”
