Behind a Little House
Part photography, part public collaboration, Behind a Little House is an ongoing art project based on the notion of our place in the world beneath one
Our identity and sense of place are constantly negotiated by the act of looking. I’m interested in how the landscape and its representation during the 18th and 19th century have played a part in the construction of national identities and even more so - a sense of belonging - anywhere in the world where the idea of “Nations” was becoming a reality, and how the same strategies may be used today to create a more open sense of belonging based on the unifying nature of our common environment. In “Behind a Little House”, rather than representing a prototypical view, an identifiable landscape, with “national”, “distinctive” and “unique” features, I’ve applied a range of visual and rhetorical tactics rooted into the landscape art of that era - this time using cross-boundary and universal symbols - to articulate an expanded sense of belonging and responsibility reflecting the current need to go beyond past rhetorics to address ever more pressing contemporary necessities. The installation develops through wall-mounted photographs leading to an open-ended artist book, turning the viewer into an agent of change on the environs surrounding the little house and inviting the public to project their memories, fears and aspirations into a physical and psychological landscape at the threshold between the personal and the universal.
By enabling the viewer to transition from spectator into an active participant, Behind a Little House gives the public the power to change the story being written through the pages of the book, speaking to our individual responsibility and collective role in writing the future of our infinitely beautiful and fragile world.
