Seclusion / Kunstfest Weimar 2015.
Weimar, Germany 2015.
The private spaces in which we live can be divided into two parts: a functional one, and a non-functional one. The functional one mainly consists of practical tools (chairs, table, fridge, etc.) which support our social engagement. The second one is less social, but serves the personal, aesthetic needs leftover from the first part.
“Seclusion” is an attempt to localize and reshape that personal part of private space by separating it from the conventionally valued elements of the room. Through an ongoing process of determining the borders between those two parts, the installation explores the intangible capacities of the living space.
