an odyssey 2018
Hour Hands 2018
Installation Performance / Clay, wood, LED screen, soup, wood stove
I invited 100 people of all ages and background from the neighborhood of the museum, to built their own house out of a small piece of clay that I gave them.
All the houses were installed inside the museum space in a specially designed setup.
Outside the museum and during the opening, there was an open fire and visitors were offered soup, bread and a small piece of clay.
The project was still developing by the visitors them selves. They were all enthusiastically building new houses, placing them among the existed ones and showing them to each other.

I started making this house for practical reasons – a place to stay alone or with my children – but in time it started to grow and transform.
The whole construction is flexible and quite open concerning its final form,
which is based on the idea of a house, an essential need but also a living entity: constantly moving and evolving.
The house has three windows and a door that can be opened in two different parts and inside a closet for clothes, a desk with a chair, a sofa (big enough for one person to sleep) and an entresol with a double bed.

Inverting the image of the city, I recognise less.
I can’t tell east from west, which way is up or down,
if it is a city or a natural landscape.
And yet, I can see farther. It provokes both my eye and my perspective.
It’s building up and falling apart, again and again.
And in this chaotic and inhospitable environment I am finding my home.
