The works of a new generation of swiss and international artists blur the line between exhibition space and domestic space, challenging our imagination of home.

About

A Home is not a House addresses problems of identity and identification through the mean of artworks, material forms of often poor facture or modest means . Technics in use are and the exhibition is mainly concerned about a structural fallacy: how identity problematics systematically use spatial metaphors. Here the position of arworks locates ideally in an in between space, that is a the same time that of common sense and of division, as that of inscription of a subjectivity. Concerned with space to address identity, works oscilate between public reception and private use, not architecture and not discourse. They address relationship of the body wwith built environments. When expression, or exhibition, the passage from one space to another, the move of a house to a home, of the private is both obsolete and violent. Types of space carrying history. The domestic and the public as so to be dismanteled.
