When the Danish Louisiana Museum of Modern Art asked, "How does the good life look today?" as a lead-in to LIVING, Frontiers of Architecture, an exhibition focussing on the relationship between art and architecture, Arne Quinze responded with an installation: My Home My House My Stilthouse. The work is a study of how we erect boundaries to demarcate what is ours as a way of safeguarding our privacy and our territory. But what Quinze manages to open our eyes to is that although we try to be quite rigid about this approach, lines do blur and we often leave ourselves open to some extent. A better way to live, is it not?
My Home My House My Stilthouse & My Safe Garden will run at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark from June 1 through October 2, 2011.
