"Pillow Fort" is a cottage made of aluminium pillows. It looks soft, but is actually hard, sterile and cold. It’s a small house without windows or doorways, a shiny façade that provides no warmth, a fort that only offers illusory protection. The work possesses the dichotomy that the terms ‘home’ and ‘living conditions’ actually entail. The home is a place for protection, security and warmth. But for some, it is a place associated with a traumatic childhood, isolation, loneliness and social exclusion.
