Home?

Beili Liu (US): Recall, Hå Gamle Prestegaard (2011)

A house made of waxed threads. Liu has re-created her parents’ house in Northern China in the gallery space. It’s a simple one-room building. Thin strands are hanging from the ceiling, wax is a fluid material, and it will very slowly be running down the strings. In the end it will all become invisible – The installation is an exceptional poetic paraphrase over the idea of home. It’s very-very beautiful work of art!

    That’s very interesting. For many people “home” is so concrete. But for others that move across country or continents, “home” loses its structural permanence and importance. Very remarkable way of capturing that idea!
