Vienna Pighin | Single Use Functioning House Key
Single Use Functioning House Key
Toronto, Canada: ESA, 2017
5 x 2 cm.
Edition size unknown
A resin cast of the artist's personal house key is available at the Toronto Art Book Fair, at the booth for Etobicoke School of the Arts, organized by Matthew Varey. The accompanying key chain identifies the title, which suggests both a warm, welcoming gesture, and perhaps a bit of a trap.
Oddly, the other purchase I made yesterday is a book called Hardcore Architecture, which uses Google Street View to present the homes behind the addresses in hardcore zines from the eighties where one would write away to purchase DIY cassettes, 7" singles or band merch.
