Description:
On the course of the action, I focused on the feeling of being at home in the flats of total strangers. I approached the residents of Hull, England on the telephone, in the street and other public spaces, asking them to let me in into their homes so that I could perform an everyday task of their suggestion there. (...) My activities were recorded on video by my hosts. In the installation, television sets positioned as traps showed in a loop video recordings of the moment of asking “permission for entry”. A separate, traditionally placed monitor displayed video recordings of the tasks performed in the flats. From each home I “visited,” I took an object of no value with me, which also became incorporated into the work. (P.Sz.)
