November 8 December 23 2006 / opening reception Nov 7 / 6 8 pm
Housewarming brings together a group of international emerging artists producing work that refers explicitly to the arrangement and designation of space. Mounting shows means continuously moving objects in and out of rooms. They are installed with great care, only to be removed again a few weeks later. The presence of changing artworks actually constitutes new space. In the slender volume Art and Space, Martin Heidegger proposes an unexpected inversion to the conventional reading of space. To discover a spaces essence, we must think of it as active, constituting itself by the presence of its contained objects.
