Maria Jönsson - Untitled (hanger and copper tape) 2012
If I were asked to name the chief benefit of the house, I should say: the house shelters day-dreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace.
- Gaston Bachelard, Poetics of Space
We believe in an unconstrained way of living. That the most important thing is to have a home you feel comfortable in every day. A home where you can express your style, a home that puts your comfort first and has a big heart for welcoming friends and family no matter if it is Tuesday or Saturday.
- 2012-2013 IKEA Catalog
The inaugural exhibition, Warm, takes its name from the tradition of a housewarming and establishes a framework for this conversation between art and living space. The work by these eight artists references the construct of home--the emotional state that signifies comfort and security--while also referring to the construction of a home through building materials, representations of houses, and detoured domestic objects.
Warm is one of several events around Baltimore held in conjunction with the exhibition, House Show, at Case[werks].
