Home Alone (2018)
Concrete cast, 18x74x23cm
The sculpture is a concrete cast of the exact light beam, that is falling through the house’s dog flap in the film »Home Alone«. »Home Alone« (1990) is a film in which a rich boy defends his house against two stupid thiefs who almost like in a Freudian dream penetrate the house through every possible opening. The dog flap is a humorous, separating and connecting moment of having and not having, poor and rich, being a small boy and being an adult criminal.
