DESCRIPTION

A desirable ideal with an absence of human activity – this is how the home is being presented in property advertisements and interior design magazines. The most personal objects are tucked away and we are not allowed to see anything that could be apprehended as strange or offensive. The significance of the home is not first of all to be used, but to be looked at from an aesthetic point of view. The furnishing serves as a status symbol for the owner and aims to enhance the economic value in a possible sale. The home is hence being reduced to a product. The work consists of furniture and objects made of expanded polystyrene, covered in dark chocolate. A film is also part of the work. The work has been shown at Stockholm School of Economics and at Candyland, Stockholm, 2006.
