“A chair is still a chair, even when there's no one sittin' there
But a chair is not a house and a house is not a home.
A room is still a room, oh, even when there's nothin' there but gloom
But a room is not a house and a house is not a home.” - lyrics from A House is Not A Home (song) 1964
A multimedia exhibition and happening spanning design, gastronomy, performance/installation and photography. A House is Not a Home brings into question concepts of living, consumption and “occupation” (“space”, “home”, ownership) in art, culture and society by offering up various artistic expressions.
