The Anatomy of a Home

The Anatomy of a Home

THIS PROJECT IS PART OF THE RE:BUILDING RESILIENCE EXHIBITION.

Lead Artist: Saba Akhtar

The Anatomy of A Home is a multi-media installation exploring a person’s relationship to home. Audiences are invited to walk through a blueprint of a house etched into the floor and observe the artifacts placed within. This is part of a larger performance project that explores Saba’s relationships to home and isolation, in her past and during COVID-19.
