Exhibition piece! The title of the work is a quote taken from Bachelard’s; Poetics of space. As my final decision for the piece I painted over the frames- removing the glass- hoping to portray the glossing over of a family that was once there. The magnolia has erased the past and erased the memories. The house reverts back to it’s original shell.
“In every dwelling, even the richest, the first task of the phenomenologist is to find the original shell.”
