La Casa Eivissenca

Miniature house created for The Selkie: Weaving and the Wild Feminine exhibition at the ONCA Gallery in Brighton, UK, in March 2017. The house is based on typical Ibicencan architecture design, including an interior sabina-wood roof, and the painted folk patterns and motifs are directly transcribed from decorations found at the Font d’en Miquelet, an ancient well on Ibiza. Miniature framed images within the house feature payesa country-women of Ibiza, and in the centre of the house is a water-filled, moss-lined receptacle representing a well. The house was exhibited within the Selkie exhibition as a mythical refuge or womens’ ‘water temple’. Materials: cardboard, acrylic paints, found materials (canes, twigs, moss).
