Washuis [Laundry House]

Loreta Visic


Installation, 420 x 350 x 500 cm.
Materials: iron, clothing, washing line

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK007289).

Washuis (Laundry-House) is an installation of a house made on an iron frame; inside hang men's, women's and children's clothes. The physical form/effect of the installation is entirely dependent on weather conditions. If it's fine and calm, the house seems serene, safe and welcoming. But if the wind is blowing, the clothing flaps about and the house appears hostile and threatening. At such moments, the viewer is able to fully experience the essence of Loreta Visic's artistic practice.
