Homeland By Pontus Willfors

View all 13 Photos

The ‘Homeland’ exhibition challenges a concept one often takes for granted – the safety and security of home. The home as a shelter that protects from the outside world, the place where one feels relaxed and comfortable. Los Angeles-based artist Pontus Willfors created a series of sculptural works that put the idea of home in a completely new light. The exhibition took place at Edward Cella Art & Architecture Gallery and brought together a captivating range of artworks.

Using metal, barbed wire and natural wood, the artist created several domestic objects and gave them a completely different identity in a new context. A baby crib features dangerous barb wire instead of wooden bars. A chair hovers slightly above the floor while undulating branches seemingly grow from its frame. A large tree dominates a white-walled room, its branches cut but re-attached and connected by chain sections. Surreal and dark, ‘Homeland’ questions the concept of home and the way it affects one’s identity. Photography credits: Pontus Willfors.
