Chiltern Sculpture Trail, UK
“Heimat 2”

Seven houses placed high on 'stilts'- each house containing a child's toy. Work includes a separate 7' high steel 'door' with attached door 'knocker'.

Materials: steel, wood, toys, recycled tin cans, polycarbonate.

“At the threshold of this piece, a large steel door stands as a boundary to be crossed. Seven miniature houses are raised on stilts and situated at a height at which the onlooker can peer into them. Placed in each house is a different child's toy. The re-used material from which the houses are made and the reminiscent quality of the childhood objects, evoke the notion of home, belonging, security and entrapment, but also a sense of time, memories or history”.
