The House as a Motive Object
Art in Process
Like the house’s façade is the human face;
The nature of its outer appearance is to cover and protect that which it conceals.
The exterior, an architectural event immortalizing a pretense of design,
is the raw material that moves the spirit of Hila’s works.
Her houses become something inaccessible,
we are invited to their entrance but are prevented from experiencing their insides.
Hila’s identification with an object, whose outlines preserve a childish simplicity,
Sometimes rooted at a distant crossroads or removed from any logical setting or material solidity,
Her houses are scarred and their shells slowly eaten by corrosion.
The corrosion nibbles slowly and quietly, like memories that plague our thoughts and leave their marks.
We can try to anchor the elements of Hila’s work in a structure that encompasses time and material decay.
