I made this piece with my mum who was a self-taught conceptual artist. I have always been interested in creativity that fails to find an outlet, or sits and waits for its time to come. She designed an old people’s home that she wanted to live in that she called an ‘anti-lonely house’.
The work consists of the drawing that my Mum had made for her ideal home and a video of her talking about the project.
This work evolved from an invitation to take part in an exhibition about architecture in 2001. The exhibition was called ‘Demonstration room: ideal house‘ part of THE BIG SHOW: a series of exhibitions on globalisation conceived by Wim Peeters. This piece toured to Antwerp, Caracas and New York.
