The provocation for ‘Body House’ is the erosion of cultural & material bonds.

In the 21st century, the idea of ‘home’ as a fixed physical and geographical location seems redundant. Under such conditions, how does one reconcile one’s existence and aim to achieve a sense of futurity? Can being without nation or flag, be liberation rather than a loss?

Inspired by ‘Femme Maison’ (‘Woman House’/’housewife’) sketches of Louise Bourgeois, Shabnam Shabazi offers a new reading as ‘my body is my home’.

Body House (vers. iii) is a personal journey into the realms of dislocation, rootless-ness and ‘homesickness’ in times of trouble.
