Who we are
We are an art events movement run by a group of friends and collaborators made up of The Mutoid Waste Company and The Cordy House Family.
We work together to create surprising locations, with memorable atmospheres, so that the Art we exhibit can reach and engage more people than a gallery.
Our governing principle began with Joe Rush and the Mutoid Waste Company – we mix art into a bigger event and make sure everyone has a good time.
Here’s a video with Joe talking about our first show, which was called ‘Mutate Britain: Behind the Shutters’…
Mutoid Waste Company
The Mutoid Waste Company are some of the most infamous founders of modern counter culture. They began c.1984 at the Apocalypse Hotel on Freston Road, Ladbroke Grove. They went on to make a significant mark on Glastonbury Festival, tour the world at the vanguard of the Acid House scene, hi-jack a MIG fighter from Russia, build sculptures on the Berlin Wall and laterly create untold specatcles at the world’s biggest festivals. Their story is epic. In this video Joe gives you a little look at Mutational doings…
Cordy House Family
Between 2008 and 2010, Liam Hayhow and Garfield Hackett made Cordy House a beacon of creative independence amidst the saturated streets of Shoreditch. It’s spirt lives on through Mutate Britain as it was here that the Mutoids (Joe Rush, Wreckage, Sam Haggarty, Giles Walker and others) and the Cordy Family (Hayhow, Hackett, Teddy Baden, Dhugal Harrison, Jack Lomax and others) started working together. Over the years many artists graced the walls of the building, below is an insight into One Day at Cordy House and you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want.
