This weekend I had an exhibition in my home with nine new works and two old. When the idea of having an "home-exhibition" was born, I was filled with questions. Did I want to let strangers into my home? When will a home become a public place? What happens when the homley is transformed into something un-homely? I came to think of Freud's essay Das Unheimliche.
"Uncanny [unheimlich] is what one calls everything that was meant to remain secret and hidden and has come into the open."
- Sigmund Freud "Das Unhemliche" 1919
