The construction of this house started in January 2021 as part of my Master´s project You Set the Scene. This wooden house was made as a way to complement and continue with my printmaking research in the expanded field. It was originally thought as a space that would allow me to contain my own memories inside it. The interactions created between the house and my memories happened while carving the internal walls of the house with personal symbols, objects and other fundamental elements that constitute my identity and history.
The house is the container of different narratives that are build and transformed with time. It is for this reason that the house is designed in a way that makes it possible to put apart to carve and print its walls and then it can be easily rearranged. I think of it as a continuous work in progress.
Additionally, the house operates as a space that can contain moving images. In my case, this happened through the projections of drawings that tell the story of my departure from Mexico, my new life and the complications of being an immigrant in Norway, the situation with the pandemic, and my introspective journey through the different seasons.
After having shown the house in two different occasions, I have decided to start sharing it: to open it to other voices and stories. I consider this space as an alternative way to exhibit and explore different proposals and artistic projects: a tiny gallery. This is the moment to start sharing my house with all of you
