'Hide' is a sculptural installation building on ideas of the home, childhood, intimate spaces and domestic claustrophobia. The work forms a landscape which visitors can enter and inhabit. It explores the human need for shelter, and our desire to control/ create our environment, staking our place in the world.
The work is by the artist Anna Ban, who works across art and architecture, looking at the crossovers between disciplines while examining narratives through sculpture, drawing and installation.
The piece is made up of timber and ply forms based on domestic objects, and a painted textile landscape of found fabrics, which create an alternate architecture.
Navigating the collection of spaces, visitors explore the ways we create our own worlds in order to understand the world around us, and how we stage our own identities, stories and futures through re-enactment and play.
Hide is an invitation: a chance to revisit something lost; or imagine something different.
