Het Blauwe Veld Kleine Oord 170, 6811 HZ Arnhem

The modern human being has evolved into an indoor species.While people worry about the world outside our homes in cities being dirty or contaminated, the insides of them house millions of microbes and bacteria. At the same time, domesticity is a logical evolution of the human species. “Everybody needs a shell” exposes nature's porous, visible messiness alongside man-made daily life objects purposing cleanliness and control. Park under the wrong tree – one where a flock of starlings or pigeons comes to roost – and in the meanwhile, bird excrement stains our cars and awnings and, if not cleaned in time, leaves a mark forever and possibly creates a contemporary fossil. "Everybody needs a shell” wants to show that nature always gains the upper hand, despite humans living in a state of delusion of overpowering nature.

At Het Blauwe Veld three awnings are visible behind the window, instead of outside where they most often appear. Despite the printed defecation being identical, and the awnings not covering any windows, the three pieces hint at reality, with a subtle glitch.
