The Newspaper House
installation by Sumer Erek
produced by Karen Janody

The Newspaper House continues its journey to Liverpool, the Cultural Capital of Europe 2008, during the 5th Liverpool Biennial of contemporary arts.

It was first created in London’s Gillett Square in March 2008, transforming over 85,000 used newspapers into a thought provoking artwork, attracting a wide range of people and press coverage internationally. It now counts over 100,000 newspapers.

The nature of the project is participatory. Liverpool artists, residents, visitors, community organisations, and schools have been invited to participate. A new community, whose members become engaged in a process of creation, forms temporarily. In past times, this was not out of the ordinary, today culturally,
it is no longer a shared experience.

The action of rolling the newspaper returns it to an almost natural state, close its natural origin. Newspapers are then placed in a prescriptive order to create the foundation of the “House”.

First Erek builds a shell-like structure. Metin Senerguc writes:
“If we re-read Walter Benjamin's aphorismatic warning: "The work is the mask of its conception", we may believe that Erek is trying to turn this process around in his Newspaper House project. He first builds the mask, then places the ideas within it. He fills it up from inside to make it visible.”

House made of Metros!

At Metro, we love to hear of new ways to reuse our newspaper after it's been read.And we think that artist Sumer Erek's newspaper house is an idea that stands up.
He is creating a house made out of about 80,000 papers.Erek, 48, said: 'People don't think you can build a house from newspapers because paper is flimsy, but when it is rolled up it is quite strong.'He said the project was about 'making public use of a public space using public waste'.
