Home Taxidermy - Noa Heyne

Noa Heyne ( Israel )

The artists aim is to work towards creating a large interactive sculpture installation that will be open to the public and also hold scheduled performances. The basis for this is exploring forms of physical interaction in urban spaces.

The project will focus on the urban cycles of building and destruction that turn the home into an ephemeral concept. As part of artists Noa Heyne research will be looking into routes of immigration and refugee of current and past asylum seekers, in and on their way to Berlin. The research questions what happens to identity after migration, and how the trauma of migration is reflected in the attempts of individuals and communities to rebuild their homes in a new place. These themes will be translated to physical presences that are experienced primarily through the body.
