Bare bones building
Building for an unhappy girl, 2018
Wood, tar paper, pallet

I came across this old playhouse in a suburban garden of Stockholm. It had been advertised as free materials in the classifieds- the owners wanted to get rid of the building . Turns out it was built in the 1950's for a little girl who, I dunno, was ill or something- there were rumours of an ill-fated life and I suppose the present owners wanted to rid themselves of those memories. Beautifully built it made for a good object to cut into the smallest pieces possible while retaining a semblance of structure. Loose all the excessive material as it were. 
The house became a sculpture in a series of objects - ladder, chair, pallet where all excessive material has been taken away.
