Public in Private / Clémentine M. Songe
in cooperation with Morana Mažuran, Jonas Maria Droste, Ruth Waldeyer
A room with a life of its own. What if the furniture that inhabits our living room was tired of its fixed roles and tasks and decides to break free, move around, jump, transform, disassemble itself or join forces with other appliances? What if your bed, chair and bookshelf decided that they want to exist independent
from their habitual context, on their own terms, free to become what they want, free to leave their fixed position and venture into the world.
In Living Room Clémentine M. Songe aka Clément Layes explores the dynamics of the living room, that place where we surround ourself with things that feel familiar, intimate, recognizable, safe. Transforming this room into a living room, a room that makes its own choices. In collaboration with the architect Morana Mažuran, the light designer Ruth Waldeyer and visual artist Jonas Maria Droste, Clémentine M. Songe bare the many interrelations that appear between our lives and this place, showing how much we take our habitual environment for granted, relying on it in order to feel at home in the world.
After a successful premiere at Sophiensaele, Living Room can now be seen as a
spatial installation at O&O Depot.
