Home Balance
Saturday, April 16, 2016
8:30 - 10 PM
In conjunction with CounterCurrent 2016
A large inflatable bouncy house-like the one popping up on your neighbor's lawn heralding the arrival of a child's noisy birthday party-is custom built with walls that become glowing film screens. A camera captures the actions of participants bouncing inside the house, projecting live images on one side of the house. The rest of the walls are illuminated by videos of the artists' (a wife-and-husband team) family inside their own home: the artists and their children jumping up and down, breaking things, hitting their heads against the ceiling, knocking over furniture, falling, creating complete havoc.
As the private space of the family home is made public for everyone to see, visitors can enter and bounce in the midst of the images. In a bouncy house the goal is to maintain stability in an environment not designed for stability, while our real homes are designed for a stability that our home-life can never attain. Home Balance questions what constitutes a home, and draws on childhood games to explore how family interactions challenge the desire to maintain orderly control of the structures in which we dwell.
Hillerbrand+Magsamen are the photographers and the photographed; their home is their canvas, their family is their subject, and their actions become their content. Home, family, belongings-nothing is left un-deconstructed in their art-often quite literally, as sofas, bedroom walls, and dinnerware come under physical attack. With humor, performance, video and everyday objects, Hillerbrand+Magsamen expand their family life into a contemporary art conversation about family dynamics, suburban life and American consumer excess.
During the CounterCurrent festival, Home Balance will travel throughout the city. Click here for additional locations and times.
