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...
