Rirkrit Tiravanija
Dom-Ino
12 septembre - 31 octobre 1998

Once the sports competitions (or other shows) over, stadium architectures becomes meaningless. Without spectators, they are nothing but empty shells. The onlookers on the step form a passive controlled mass. Each individual being completely directed by the spectacle in the center. In an evocation of this center, Rirkrit Tiravanija has chosen to install a replica of the « Dom-Ino » project (1915) by le Corbusier. In this wooden replica, Rirkrit Tiravanija invites the visitor to invest the two platforms of the habitat. Thus, the spectator becomes the inventor and the actor of his own environment, in the interaction with his fellows visitors. The lower platform is equiped with a CD and cassette player, a TV monitor, a kitchen corner with table, butagaz-cooker, and a low table with poufs. The visitors are invited to use the house as they wish, and to share what they bring or find with the others.
