An exhibition celebrating 25 years of The Designers Republic, has opened at the Parfitt Gallery, in tDR founder Ian Anderson’s childhood home of Croydon.

The exhibition follows the recent tDR 25th anniversary exhibition at GGG in Tokyo. The show is a personal selection by Anderson of some of tDR’s most significant works, alongside more surprising, less well-known projects.

A prominent influence on the exhibition is 28 Zermatt Road, Anderson’s childhood home in Thornton Heath. “I think I’m playing more with the notion of belonging and ownership, and voluntary slavery/allegiance to geographical opinion – expressed through the selfish mythologising of the house that was, by chance, my first home,” he says.

The exhibition will run until June 1 at the Parfitt Gallery, which is located in the Higher Education building of Croydon College. More info on the show can be found at parfittgallery.croydon.ac.uk.
