Depictions of home

NT BUZZ

Museum of Goa (MOG) hosted the Giant Dolls’ House Project (GDH), an international collaborative arts project founded by Catja de Haas.

In her address, De Haas shared with the audience the idea behind the project. She said that the project originated from her thesis on the relationship between miniature and the home when she was completing her PhD by Design.

The GDH project, which usually revolves around the idea of home, took a different form in Goa, where different groups in Goa were asked: What does Goa mean to you? The boxes received in response were then displayed on the beautiful installation at MOG.

The inauguration was followed by a storytelling session with Rochelle D’Silva who, with her stories, led the audience into the world of these miniature boxes and beyond; later in the evening David de Souza, Hyacinth Pinto and Ricardo Rebelo presented their works around the ideas of home and sustainability.

The Giant Dolls’ House project installation is on display till May 14 at Museum of Goa. Details: Info.museumofgoa@gmail.com/7722089666
