Situation Uncontainable by Architecture. Hand-hooked wool rug, tape. Dimensions variable. 2006.

In response to architect Eileen Grey's house E.1027, where "entrez lentement" (enter slowly) is stenciled on the wall, this piece relies on flexible structures whose meaning is constituted in the moment of use. The text on the welcome mat refers both to a sexual move and a spatial move. The incongruity between the physical presence of the rug and the speculative representation of the tape drawing is confusing. Where is the location of what event?
