Lot Essay

"Reading a book is both a physical and a mental activity. It is like walking through a house, following the layout of the rooms with your body and mind: the movement from one room to another, or from one part of the book to another, constitutes an experiential narrative that is physical and conscious at the same time." - Olafur Eliasson.

A commission by the Library Council of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, Your House consists of a laser-cut negative impression of Eliasson’s house in Copenhagen on a scale of 85:1.
