priscilla monge, the house

the house

For her work, Priscilla Monge, an artist from Costa Rica, looked at the traffic circle in Leobendorf and the landscape of northern Lower Austria very closely. She was struck by how many single-family homes she found in this area: nicely decorated houses surrounded by neatly kept yards lined with fences that both mark and protect the property. Based on this idea, Priscilla Monge placed an "exemplary" small house in the middle (actually a little off-center) of a large traffic circle. The house is a little lopsided, as if a strong wind has been ceaselessly blowing on it from one direction. It has a chimney, two windows and a door.
