Bohemian Street Home
home lamps, mylar and wires
Turning meanings and roles upside-down, Daniel González takes everyday objects that are normally connected to daily gestures inside private spaces and brings them outside on the street. This action changes commonly accepted conventions that assume preconceived roles for everything that surrounds us: what was once domestic becomes public but it still carries with it the memory of its private life. What was simply useful becomes the archetype of beauty by changing context.
In Bohemian Street Home a selection of lamps for interior spaces is forming an emotional chain between the inside/outside space, making the public area more familiar and intimate. The installation pops-up during Ventura gallery openings.
