This project, connected to the life and work of the italian-brazilian architect Lina Bo Bardi (1914-1992), includes a video installation investigating displacement and remembrance, raising questions of time and space based on historical accounts of art and architecture. The glass house, designed by Lina Bo Bardi in São Paulo in 1951, is filmed at two different occasions: in 1999 and 2008.

The image of this house shows a vast and eclectic collection of modern art, antiquities, memorabilia and popular objects reflecting the practice of Lina and her husband Pietro Maria Bardi. Transformation of space, affecting our perception and affective experience inhabits this project; revealing a space’s elements as relic, biography and fiction; where its constant reality is the space itself and its movement. This project is a collaboration with artist Laura Erber.
