Considering them as part of herself and partly responsible of her work, Alice Raymond invites friends and colleagues she has encountered throughout her travels, to build an eclectic collection. This collection is offered to visitors within the confines of a unique structure. The structure is asymmetrical in shape with a raw and unfinished exterior. Inside, the walls are finished and create an intimate environment to offer these works as a private collection to two individuals at a time for the duration of their stay.
Behind the rough walls, we can see the formation of relationships between the participants and the artist—relationships built over time and by chance. Raymond uses the act of choice in her practice to bring together people and their offered objects for one installation. Instead of decisions about materials, Raymond is interested in social choices influenced by her travels and everyday encounters. This project brings up collective pluralistic ideas and questions the individualistic tendencies popular in the art world.
