The Dreaming House

2015

“The Dreaming House” series functions both as drawings—created by combining ink and pencil—and as stills of a video animation with the same title. Here, the artist is exploring several issues connected to figurative drawing and to her work in particular: from the doll house, to the haunted house; from theater scenes to drawing animation; from Florine Stettheimer’s explorations, to Piranesi’s studies.

 

Furthermore, while all of the works were both part of the video animation and exhibited as framed drawings on paper, three of them where mounted on structures and presented as one three-dimensional work on customized polygonal wooden pedestals. The work was a house model consisting of three rooms each of them occupying a third—a slice—of the polygonal pedestal.
