Ho[me].Ho[use]

November 2016
 

Rope, Hand Embroidery, Ink, Lamp, Wooden Furniture 

Created through a residency with 12 artists, over 2weeks making work in response to a Victorian house in Cardiff. Looking at ideas of identity, memory and trace.

Ho[me].Ho[use] responded to the architecture of the house and the traces left behind. Peeling back the layers and traces within the house, memories where pieced together within the abstracted image of a 'web' stretching across the room.

 

Through this act ​Ho[me].Ho[use] plays with the body in space and asks the questions:

 

What is the meaning of house?

 

What is the meaning of home?


Is a house simply architecture for a home?

What happens if we only have a house and not a home?

Does a home always have to be a house...

 

 

Event: house M.A.D.E residency (with Cardiff M.A.D.E)

A process of uncovering and restoring history. A seeking to understand who may have came before.
