fit for habitation

“Fit For Habitation brings together 5 artists working in fields of fine art, design, and interior design. Fit for Habitation questions the idea that four walls make a home and explores interior and exterior spaces as well as more abstract conceptions of home through video and installation.

These five artists have collaborated to create their own interpretations of home through a shared installation, using both traditional and non-traditional materials as well following formal and informal conceptual movements taken from interior design and fine art.

The idea of opposites has also come to be an integral part of the exhibition. The concept of real versus fake is brought into play, by combining real materials with materials the artists have created to appear real and questioning whether we as people need the reality of a “home” or simply the illusion of comfort and safety. The exhibition further plays with the viewer’s concept of reality by bringing the outdoors inside, as well as creating additional interior spaces within the larger space of the gallery.” – live with animals
