…Nobody’s House consists of three elements (sculptures) and two annexes (video and object). The white-coloured relief table cover, placed over a table for six, is made of dozens of authentic casts of numerous guests’, partners’, friends’ and passers’-by body parts – feet, bellies, knees, palms, breasts and buttocks, in latex, joined by sewing. The latex duvet cover, in the colour of flesh, is made from about 1,000 casts of human faces (sleepers) glued together, where the rhomboid opening allows a “peek” into the interior of the cover/sculpture. The chandelier, that illuminates/darkens the space of the house, designed as a bizarre polyelei, is formed by rows of 4,300 porcelain teeth. Each tooth is made by hand as an authentic and unique form and has its own identity.

… In Nobody’s House, the author uses authentic language to build the archaeology of the space of a house, exploring and questioning the boundaries, interweaving and dichotomies of personal/intimate and public space, but also the physical and metaphysical, visible and invisible, face and reverse, material and spiritual, permanent and ephemeral. It is an essay about time, about its flow, but also about people, their communication and interaction, about the memory of their duration, recorded in material and immaterial space…
