Edmund Clark is the first artist to work and stay in a house in which a man suspected of involvement with terrorist-related activity was placed under a Control Order in the UK. ‘Control Order House’ explores this form of detention through photographs and architectural representations of the house, and the handwritten diary of the man known only as CE. The book includes redacted documents relating to CE’s case. Clark’s implication in the process is further revealed through his correspondence from the Home Office, which makes clear the control and censorship imposed on his work inside the house. Any material could become part of CE’s case.
