A House is not a Home
21.09 - 10.10.2019

A House is not a Home / A Home is not a House is a double exhibition that addresses the binary logic of identification and identity. The exhibition presents the works of thirteen artists who have in common a relation to spatiality. They share an intuition that links architecture to embodiment. Occupying a certain space, the works do not take their place for granted. They contest the course that leads them from their conception to their reception. Though the works address a visitor’s attention, they also refuse to be subjected to a normative interpretation.

Oscillating between the public house of art and the private home of the self, the artworks befall one realm with the other. They refer more or less sincerely to domestication, to the decorative, to classical artistic mediums, and to craftsmanship. Often made by the hand of the artist, their materiality emanates a certain charme but, perversely, also alludes to the precarity of artistic production.
