After completing a gallery installation inspired by the streetscapes of Cleveland’s Slavic Village at SPACES, artist-in-residence Papcún extended his stay in the city to work on an ambitious outdoor installation. Touched by Cleveland’s foreclosure crisis and the families affected by it, Papcún spent weeks deconstructing a house in Ohio City to create a project that captures the meaning of the home as a source of protection and shelter, a place for intimacy, a keeper of dreams and memories, and how these structures can deteriorate over time when abandoned or when families are forced to move out.

The public installation will be on view through this week only!
