Living by the Code of Curtains


In this installation, curtains are borrowed from neighboring houses and exhibited in a park. Free from houses and buildings, curtains become themselves. They become a form of expanded attire, neither clothing nor buildings. They become soft architecture. They become memories of life, not commercial products. This is living by the code of curtains. While the borrowed curtains flutter in the breeze outside, the people who loaned them use specially produced curtains in their homes. Borrowed curtains become an artwork, and curtains as an artwork become part of the everyday.
