Imagine that you could be somebody else just for a moment. In HOUSE, you are invited to an unknown location. Due to the unexpected situations in which you find yourself, as a viewer you can no longer continue to observe things from the side-lines: there is no place to hide. Without any coercion but in a completely natural, surreal way, you become part of a new ‘home’.
Imaginons qu’on puisse être autrui le temps d’un instant. Dans HUIS, on est invité dans un lieu inconnu. En raison de la situation inattendue dans laquelle on aboutit, on ne peut plus assister en spectateur depuis la ligne de touche : il n’y a nulle part où se cacher. Sans aucune pression, de manière totalement naturelle, quasi surréaliste, on devient un élément d’un nouveau « chez-soi ».
Anywhere Doors is an interactive installation that moves through the public space. Five doors on wheels traverse the urban landscape – and evoke question about territories and borders. Feel free to open the doors, to close them, to step through them… Anywhere Doors will begin its journey in front of the 5 Blocks, as an open invitation to the children in the neighbourhood. You can accompany it to the Kaaistudios, where you will be treated to hot chocolate, waffles, and all the activities at the Arts Day!
