MARIANA BERSTEN | LA ARQUITECTURA DEL DERRUMBE

THE ARCHITECTURE OF COLLAPSE

This series by Buenos AIres artist Mariana Bersten explores the concept of the home as an Eden, a paradise, an enclosed space, a place of protection from outer space.

Bersten started to work on this project after she moved and almost lost all her belongings, developing an interest in the idea and concept of the house, security and insecurity, fear, closure.  This notion expanded to the house as a reflection of social and geographic strata, the attainment - or lack - of paradise through housing.  The universal need to build a space with an identity and a place of belonging.

Summer and the Architecture of Collapse is a photo installation -explored with different media, photography, painting and objects - that refers to the idea of paradise, and the instance when that paradise is broken - when the home becomes a threat, a dangerous place.
