CASA was part of A PLACE IN TIME, an exhibition in Nirox Sculpture Park, in the Cradle of Humankind, curated by Helen Pheby, curator of the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, UK in 2016. The piece is now part of the Park's permanent exhibition.
Casa is a meditation on home.
The piece confronts the viewer with the paradox of an inaccessible refuge: a warm and permanenlty lit wooden house that tempts the viewer to go inside, but there are neither windows or doors.
The piece is meant to be built in different places around the world, each reflecting on different idealizations of home.
It has been built in the Cradle of Humankind, South Africa (Nirox Sculpture Park) and Buenos Aires (Argentina). Next construction will be in Detroit (United States).
Aprox. Size: 500 cm x 400 cm x 400 cm high.
