A House of Leaves

September 21, 2012 – February 23, 2013

A House of Leaves is an exhibition curated by DRAF’s director Vincent Honoré and conceived in 3 movements and an epilogue. Each movement is structured around one key work from the collection: Echo VIII from 2007 by Louise Bourgeois (First Movement), Fuji from 1996 by Gerhard Richter (Second Movement) and Silent Score from 1997 by Pierre Huyghe (Third Movement). A House of Leaves references US novelist Mark Z. Danielewski’s eponymous novel, in which a house is impossible to measure as its interior dimensions become larger than its exterior. A House of Leaves tells multiple narratives and asks its viewer to become co-author in order to present a collective effort to define an art form – in this instance the contemporary art museum, from its collection, displays, special commissions and loans, to its educational and interpretation system.

A House of Leaves – First Movement (21 September – 16 November 2012) is an exhibition with works and special interventions by Horst Ademeit, Ida Applebroog, Phyllida Barlow, Nina Beier, Louise Bourgeois, Bettina Buck, Miriam Cahn, Keith Coventry, Tony Cragg, Enrico David, Matthew Day Jackson, Jason Dodge, Shannon Ebner, Thomas Houseago, Bethan Huws, Martin Kippenberger, John Latham, Alvin Lucier, Marie Lund, Benoît Maire, Victor Man, Kris Martin, Eddie Peake, Man Ray, Manuela Ribadeneira, Pietro Roccasalva, Steve Reich, Wilhelm Sasnal, Adam Thompson, Rebecca Warren, Lawrence Weiner.
