Open house was set up in the context of a large-scale group exhibition that took place in an abandoned office building. Each artist was assigned an office space to set up his work.
This piece was developed on site and materialised the desire to occupy the space with a series of objects collected from abandoned houses.
The process of setting up objects and materials and re-configuring the space contemplates the possibilities of other uses for these objects beyond the ones they had fulfilled, while stimulating formal contamination between them.
These connections led to the presentation of a controlled atmosphere that circumscribed the visitor to a given area, leaving other parts of the room inaccessible parts as a means for connections of form and function to develop.
The visitor could choose their degree of penetrability into the open space. The wooden floor was available for stepping on and the gravel white area was instinctively off limits.
