While House




er er er

Two in a room, installing their physical state in a private and mutual territory. Spaces within spaces impose their imprinted memories, as both characters function in parallel and colliding dimensions. In this environment, wild meets tamed, survival meets the need for stability. The longing for an order reveals a 'living-room-nature', raising questions about how and to what extent we engineer our environment.

While House attempts to lay wild-nature and domestic-nature side by side and expose the mystery, beauty, singularity and poesy of contrast, posing ethical / aesthetic questions about self-acculturation and coexistence. The piece reflects on the term 'home' in various contexts and metaphors, exposing its needs under a cast of obscurity and vulnerability.
