Habitat, un séjour à titre temporaire


In “Habitat, un séjour à titre temporaire”, Vansteenkiste shows us his internal structure, his denkraum, his mind space, his habitat. Here, elements of architecture meld with references to film, drawings, personal possessions, stories, images, models and Vansteenkiste’s earlier and later works. In this way he makes physical and psychological use of our spatial experience. Fittingly, then, we can describe his work as “mind spaces”. Denkraum is a concept used mostly in philosophy and architecture. The term is best defined as the building of walls ‘inside’ or ‘outside’ the chaos of personal experience, emotion, thought…, to make them clearer or more manageable, in short, to structure them.
