Haus of Perestroika
Performance (30 hours)
Wood, wool, wallpaper, acrylic, LED lights, latex
70 x 200 x 70 cm 

In conceiving the work the artist reimagines the city and habitation of tomorrow by physicalising the fear of homelessness. Using sensual materials, disproportion and bodily rhythm to edge between play and danger, the viewers are invited to consider an outmoded human body within technological systems. This work was performed in 2016 by the artist for 30 hours over a period of 5 days at an exhibition in Hackney, London.
