The Treatment Rooms HQ is the working studio for one of the UK’s leading eccentric anarchic artists Carrie Reichardt; along with a multi-talented group of artistic friends, collaborators and creative associates.
A stolen door sign from Hackney Mental Asylum 20 years ago gave birth to a small and slightly unhinged family of like-minded artistic individuals who fused together a passion for expressing activism through art. This rebellious band of renegade siblings eventually came to be known as… The Treatment Rooms Collective
Ten years on, they have a diverse group of committed Treatment Room Members, each radicalising their own communities, ranging from incarcerated political prisoners in Louisiana to Street Artists in Argentina.
Their previous projects include:
The Tiki Love Truck A mobile mosaiced mausoleum made as a shrine to their friend, executed Texan prisoner John Joe ‘Ash’ Amador
402 A thought provoking exhibition following one Man’s journey onto the Gurney.
Death Row Peep Show A surreal and emotionally stimulating art installation at Glastonbury Festival
And lest we forget, the world famous ‘Ceramic House of Resistance’ the amazing ancestral birth place of The Treatment Rooms, Carries very own intricately mosaiced home.
Be warned, however taking a trip into The Treatment Rooms HQ may change your life forever!
The artwork produced in the studio thrusts into view a reality which some may find difficult to digest – it's contentious, subversive and specifically designed to promote the viewer to rise up against corrupt establishment activity.
