Still from 'Why I don't own a sofa' by Feiko Beckers

Three houses will arise in the foyer of de Brakke Grond. Each of these houses will contain a small white cube – the ideal ‘home’ for an artwork. 

In this group exhibition, the artists explore what is needed to make a house into a home. They have an eye for repeating actions, intimate rituals and the rhythms of everyday life. In an era when our private spaces also serve as offices, hotels and displays on Instagram, these artists explore the rules and patterns we use to establish our homes. The exhibition design is by Feiko Beckers. He has created houses with the external characteristics of houses built on stilts he came across during his residency in Surinam.

The exhibition houses occupy an emphatic position within the existing architecture of de Brakke Grond. Owing to a lack of space inside the exhibition spaces, the houses have set up home in the foyer. They demand a place where there is actually no space for an exhibition.

Join for the opening and see how the artists interpret feeling at home. Alongside the exhibition, there will be a performance concerning the work of Lee Castro in the form of a short story.

Feiko Beckers, Mekhitar Garabedian, LeeCastro.
